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.

Someone on the Pacific Northwest Tesla Facebook page has reported that the Squamish supercharger doesn't have electricity. This was 1-2 hours ago and posted after they arrived in Whistler so it's been at least 2-3 hours by now so it's possible power has been restored. I just put it as a destination and no warnings popped up (This has happened to me twice in my 2.5 years of Tesla travelling when the power goes out at a supercharger that I'm routed to) so hopefully that is the case. But be careful if you are headed in that direction and maybe top up a little longer at the prior stop.

@BlueShift could you link supercharge.info to this thread rather than the generic Canadian Superchargers thread?

Vancouver, BC, Canada, Eh?
Old thread and old news but we did a little road trip up to Whistler last week and used the Squamish SC as a rest stop in both directions. This was actually our first and only two times using a SC so far, and it was absolutely painless. We found a stall without waiting (dedicated on our way North, and had to share on our way South), and the charge was so fast even though we started with a relatively high SoC (around 63 or so going North and a bit higher going South as we used the destination charger at the conference centre for a short top up--another first for us). By the time we did a quick washroom break and coffee purchase at the Starbucks, the car was ready. Extremely convenient!

HOWEVER, that does bring one piece of sad news: the Starbucks in Garibaldi Village (right in front of the SC) is now closed--its last day of operation was this past Thursday (our trip south). There is another Starbucks a little down the road in either direction so not the end of the world but will take away the one-stop washroom & charge convenience, sadly. Does anyone know of another convenient restroom in that strip mall?

I've never had a problem just walking into a Boston Pizza and using the washroom. In the case of Squamish, I've been a customer both times, but on some of the supercharger stops on my TCH trip I was not, and just walked in and took care of my business. Maybe somewhat rude as a non-customer but it is an option.

Something like 25% of the superchargers in Canada have a Boston Pizza within walking distance so they come in handy at times. They are also open fairly late (usually until around midnight) which is a plus.
