    Plugshare shows nothing at Snowshoe, Canaan Valley or Timberline. And just Lake Point Inn at Wisp.

    Any other options?

    Hi There,


    I am planning on coming to Snowshoe this winter, again in the late spring for Wanderlust, and again the next winter. It would be really great if I could drive there using my Tesla, but you don't have electric car chargers. Please consider installing electric car chargers and/or Tesla HPWCs, especially since Tesla is now installing a supercharger in Lexington VA and has one installed already in Strausburg, VA. The nearest other chargers for Tesla are 2 at the Greenbriar.


    Again, please consider,


    Regards,


    ...Andrew

    Well, now that "you" mention it, Winterplace would be a great place for Destination HPWCs as well - although there may be supercharging near there at some future point.

    For Snowshoe there is a now a plugshare entry for 2 HPWCs at Seneca. It is 150 miles and 4200 feet elevation from the Strasburg VA supercharger. The Seneca | Snowshoe, WV | Electric Car Charging Station | PlugShare

    Massanutten has a 14-50 and a couple wall plugs in Lot 2 if they aren't ICEd. Massanutten Resort - Parking Lot 2 | Massanutten, VA | Electric Car Charging Station | PlugShare

    Canann Valley has Canaan Valley Resort State Park Campground | Davis, WV | Electric Car Charging Station | PlugShare a campground open in winter nearby.

    Any others?

    I used Snowshoe's last summer. It worked great. I should start a campaign for Beech/Sugar/Ap.

    This weekend confirmed that Seneca garage has outlets in addition to Soaring eagle garage with outlets. And autopilot on many of the well marked roads to snowshoe makes it a breeze.

    I supercharged to 244 at Strasburg and arrived at Seneca garage plugging into wall outlet at 16amps with 45 miles range remaining in a P85D in range mode in snow and rain pretty much the whole way and using seat heaters and occasional front defrost, until was obviously in the clear to arrive with a nice buffer and then ran the regular heat towards the end. Nokian wrg3 tires at 50psi. 4 humans plus their baggage and a well loved Autopilot.

    Plugshare is showing Canaan Valley State Park has 3 Tesla chargers and 1 regular EV charger.

    Anyone used them yet? Anyone stay there? Do they get ICEd? How are the accommodations? How's the skiing/boarding? Does it get crowded?

    By the way, that 200 miles of range was used to cover ~158 miles of road at 30-70 mph (probably avg ~50) and ~4,000 feet of net elevation increase in cold snowy conditions.
