    The new TM supercharger map for 2017 shows a fair amount of planned activity in central CO next year.
    It's hard to tell from the resolution of the map, but they appear to be in or near Pueblo, Salida, and Alamosa.
    This is welcomed news!

    There's also a marker on what appears to be Steamboat.

    I like that Tesla is showing some love to the central US highway corridors which opens up many more ski area options in the winter.

    I'm seeing two new charges along I-25 north of Denver in addition to the Loveland charger that is just about completed. I bet I-25 & CO 14 and I-25 & CO 7.

    I noticed that also. Looks like a high SC density on I25 between Denver and the Wyoming border.

    Maybe due to the high number of Model 3 reservations along the front range. It will definitely make impromptu trips much easier between Denver and Fort Collins.

    I was hoping for Durango, but at least now it will be easier to get there, I'll just need to find a destination charge.

    A closer look at the 2017 proposed map actually shows the SC between Colorado Springs and Trinidad to be most likely at Walsenberg, not Pueblo. Alamosa and Salida still appear to be the new south-central locations.
    The new north-central location does appear to be on US-40, in, or very close to Steamboat Springs. This one is somewhat isolated which may hint of additional US40 SCs in the future in the west toward the Utah border and Dinosaur National Monument.

    Alamosa, Boulder, Denver, Estes Park, Steamboat Springs, Pancho Springs and Walsenburg are the Colorado locations Tesla has planned for 2017.

    Anyone have any updates (intel or construction photo's) on the new superchargers in Colorado?

    There are few location options in Poncha Springs-- a welcome center, and two mini-marts-- but as of 2 weeks ago, no construction activity.

    I can't get the building permit search for Chaffee County (Salida, Poncha Springs) to work. So, no luck for me.

    Edit: I did manage to take a look at the April 10 permit plan review and it doesn't list anything with Tesla on it.

    That's because there is already two threads about it on this forum.

    Supercharger - Poncha Springs, CO

    Supercharger - Poncha Springs, CO

    Would be great if whoever moderates the Mountain/Southwest sub-forums could actually organize them (or just merge them?).
