    Hi everyone,

    I'm heading up to whistler and wondering if the squamish supercharger is active. Tesla website says not until late 2017, but reviews on google indicate it is?

    -Thanks!!

    It was active 2 years ago when I used it after driving the back way to Whistler from Kamloops.

    Was unaware it was down. Supercharge.info and Tesla.com don't show it as impacted.

    Only issue I recall is that it was prone to ICEing due to the nearby businesses. Other than that it was fine.

    I live in Squamish. Haven't noticed any downtime.

    I believe the 2017/2018 maps of supercharging via the website are confusing as they highlight new stations and ones that are going to be updated with more stalls with a grey dot. I believe Squamish is a site that is "updating". Much like hope is currently going through. In which case, current stalls should barely be impacted.

    Behind Boston pizza. Starbucks right there as well. Used August 18th 2017. There is also a fresh BC cherries and fruit vendor right across the SC who has a Model S. Never was ICED.

    I used it a week ago. No signs of expansion or construction around the Supercharger.

    Looks like construction for the expansion has started now. The construction fence it up (right across from the current stalls), and Alta Lake Electric's trailer is there.

    This was actually the very first Supercharger to open in Canada. It came online in summer 2014, so unless it's down for maintenance I don't see why it shouldn't work.
