    A fast-motion and slide video of nearly thirty Teslas Climbing Mount Washigton on August 9, 2015.
    Coming down, in 17 minutes, they generated nearly 1000 miles, enough to travel half-way across America.

    Like.
    Having climbed this mountain 6 times by foot, and once by car, I am massively jealous now.

    really nice... many MANY years ago, drove to the top and camped out for a few days with a college group... never would have imagined electric car climb back then. Good work!!!!

    Something totally ironic, and great about the fact that the first two responses are sent from California!

    Nice - thanks for sharing. Great to see some familiar faces and cars from @TeslaRoadTrip! Did someone take a service loaner - silver with MFG tags?

    Would love to do this if it becomes an annual event. Is this doable, with some planning, in a 60?

    Tesla Watertown Service brought a loaner ;-).

    Yes, it is possible in a 60, assuming supercharging is enabled.

    Indeed, a Roadster came down from Montreal just for the trip up. Very cool.

    Had I not been deployed in South Korea, I would have been there too with my Roadster. Gotta put it on my calendar for next year!

    Mt. Evans is out in CO. Highest paved road in North America (14,240 ft).
