Visitors from Oz

I was my pleasure to drive a family from Australia for Christmas week. The whole “snow at Christmas” was a new experience for the kids and we even got a little dusting for a “White Christmas”. They sent an email which I’m posting here.. with permission.

“”We enjoyed everything about the Z3ro-G Limo service including Ziska’s knowledge of the area and the quality of the ride (we want a Tesla now!). This private limo service made our stay easy and comfortable. We would recommend Ziska and the Telsa Limo service to any and every traveler to Aspen and its surrounds.”

High praise indeed- but the best was the Easter Egg from Mr. Musk- a little Santa Sleigh with reindeer on the dashboard…. and the Mars Rover… which actually switched on one morning and did a little spin…

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a fantastic New Year to all….

Breakfast in the off season

April- lifts closed- and snow- welcome to Aspen.

So time for a little warm up coffee and a muffin

It used to be a gas station with a drive through now it’s more of a park and go

AC DC

Thank you Pitkin County!

There is a brand new shiny Direct Current charger across from the Aspen Airport. This will input about 140 miles per hour into the batteries which is much nicer than the 20 miles per hour from the 30 amp chargers in the next parking slots. To do this with a Tesla you need an adapter cable- well worth it when you see the number of DC charging stations which are popping up.

One of the most frequent questions is “How long does it take to charge a Tesla?” and the answer is “That depends on the charger.” Here at the Pitkin County Public Works charger (across from  the airport between the animal shelter and the bus barn) the charge is 20 miles per hour.  At the Rio Grande parking lot in Aspen it’s 28 miles per hour. At the supercharger in Glenwood Springs it’s 280 miles per hour. We looooooove the supercharger.

It’s turning into a trend – and a nice one at that.
