    It's on the map as coming soon ("By the end of 2018"), and based on my conversations with the Tesla staff over the last week or so, many believe it will be the newer Urban style chargers, but this is all purely speculation as none are on the actual supercharger team. If it is the new urban style, then perhaps China Bridge parking garage just off Main St might actually be the location. Sadly the parking garage is currently undergoing "renovation" to make it a paid garage, so while there might be superchargers installed there at some point, getting to them most likely won't be free. Based on my conversations with people at city hall, talks with Tesla about placement of the Park City Supercharger has been going on for quite some time already. Lot's of back and forth, where the perfect spots have business owners not interested in hosting them, and the business owners who would host are in spots Tesla doesn't deem acceptable. Time will tell.

    It's pretty much universally agreed that the Kimball Jct area in Park City would be a much better location, as it's just off I-80, has tons of parking, and a gazillion options for shops and restrooms, but apparently they are having a hard time getting any of the many property owners (not the businesses that lease the land) to agree on giving up the spaces for supercharging or getting a power supply for the chargers at a reasonable cost of installation.
    The whole Kimball Jct area is many different property owners mashed together, so I have some hope still, but regardless something is in the works.

    Any word on this charger? I'm coming up to Park City UT for the week of July 4th. Ideally I'd like to stay at a place with a charger - but they all seem to be on the expensive side of things.

    No progress, been checking weekly for permits..

    There are free 80amp chargers at both Silver Mountain Sports Club locations (check plugshare) and also there's 2 free CHAdeMO at the transit center in Kimball. If you're in a pinch (and don't already have one) I'll gladly loan you the CHAdeMO adaptor for while you are here.

    The china bridge parking garage next to main st has 2 free J1772 32amp chargers, and parking there is free until 5pm. After 5pm you get first hour free then it's paid.

    There's several other slower J1772's scattered around town as well. Remember busses here are free (and go everywhere!)

    I was told by the Summit Park Sinclair owner that Tesla approached him about superchargers at his gas station/restaurant. He was very supportive of it happening. Discussion sounded preliminary.

    Not ideal, but it's progress. I wish someone in Kimball Jct would get on board, that's better overall. Selfishly I'd prefer somewhere in Park City proper, but I'm not complaining, more superchargers are always good.
