I plan to visit Glacier later this summer. Not that it can’t be done without the SC, but it makes it much easier. Fingers crossed construction starts soon.

No new news for Kalispell.
A search for pulled electrical permits in Flathead County shows nothing.
BUT, the Helena SC is online now and at least two local Tesla owners are planning a drive over there this weekend to show the Super1 managers and decision makers that having a SC in their parking lot is a good thing. There is a well-sited Super1 in Kalispell. If anyone who reads this can go charge at Helena, buy a little something at the Super1 and mention to the cashier or manager that having the SC is appreciated, this might help. Also, if there are several Teslas charging, call the local newspaper and tell them there's a community interest story there. I'm sure Super1 would appreciate being mentioned.

I'm surprised there's so much discussion without any pictures of the supposed location.

Spoke with a local owner and he said that Super 1 Foods wasn't going to build Kalispell until they were confident the Supercharger in Helena was successful. He suggested stopping by there and letting the management know that you came into the store because of the Supercharger.
What is the owners definition of success? Meeting a certain revenue target? How will that be measured?

I don’t know why Tesla would wait on super1. There are literally tons of better spots on the north side of town right off the bypass that would make a lot more sense, especially for those traveling to Glacier park or Canada.

No idea.

My experience is that Tesla likes locations that cost them little-to-nothing. If there's a more desirable location with sufficient electric infrastructure and an owner who's ready to build now, perhaps it's worth sharing with Tesla.

Any more news or pictures for this site folks? Glacier National Park trip is impossible (or rather more troublesome) till this site is up.
What do you folks think of something collectively emailing supercharger email address? I can spin up a google form that will collect details of all the email addresses who want to be part of that email to supercharger.
Let me know folks if you think this is feasible or userful! Cheers.
