John’s excellent EV adventure Winter Park #CWCSC17

Leaf, Berthoud Pass Summint, August 21, 2017.

I made it to Winter Park to the town parking lot and the charging station. Easy as pie to find the hookup. Thanks Winter Park.

Leaf reported ~14 miles of range left on the top of Berthoud and ~1/4 of a charge after the long climb from Denver. After the long downhill, hardly using the accelerator, the Leaf report ~40 miles of range and still ~1/4 charge when I pulled into the parking garage. The regenerative charging system slowed the Leaf really well on the downhill side of the pass. I didn’t need to break very often.

This is my first road trip in the mountains with the EV. Next stop Kremmling Town Park for the charge to get over the hill to Steamboat.
