    Coooool! This one really sneaked up on us.

    Visiting Yellowstone will be a breeze now. If you have to, come out, charge and go back in! In addition, electric vehicle chargers are being installed inside the park.

    Love it - that solidifies what to do after visiting South Carolina next week.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Well, I'll be damned. I was just looking for the best way to get into the park in June.

    Four Seasons Jackson has destination chargers, so if you go from the north to south through Jackson, this new charger really completes the loop.

    Nice... Part of our road trip this summer is a stop in Yellowstone. We already reserved a hotel with destination chargers, but I may do some price shopping now...

    I spent many hours figuring out how to make my visit today to Yellowstone NP work including reserving one of the DCs at slightly premium priced The Grey Wolf Inn. Had heard from the Tesla field tech finishing off the Pocatello SC yesterday that he was headed up to West Yellowstone but thought he was just sussing out a site. How did supercharge.info miss this until the day it opened?? None the less, life is now much easier for all of us to visit a real treasure!!

    Went to Yellowstone NP in June 2015. I charged at the Yellowstone Lake RV Park and stayed at the Yellowstone Lake Hotel (1.5 miles west of the RV park). I later charged during brunch in Jackson, WY at one of the public chargers before heading to Salt Lake City. With a little planning you could make the trip without the SC. But, with that being said, SCs near our national parks is great.

    Makes you wonder what other locations are out there under construction we do not know about.

    I'm sure there are others in progress that have not been posted about on TMC.

    Some people (not you @KJD) complain that Tesla isn't building out Superchargers fast enough and that they are falling behind their announced schedule. This surprise find serves to point out that Tesla continues to move forward and deliberately does not provide detailed advance notice of site contruction, for good reason: some delays are outside of Tesla's control and if Tesla posted estimated opening dates people would plan trips assuming that date would be met.

    Better for Tesla to not publicize construction sites, and wait until the site is operational before adding it to their website and in-car nav.

    Yeah, it's amazing this got by, since I kept seeing so many people talking about being interested in one here. I thought it would have been discovered earlier.

    It will be great to have this plus Pocatello (and hopefully Idaho Falls). We'll be driving to the Tetons at the end of June so these will really make the trip easy.
    Hopefully they are working on I-80 across Wyoming and Nebraska which is a supercharger desert now.
