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….

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
Tesla 2016 Model S all wheel drive with auto pilot and the cold weather package.
Pictures coming soon… meanwhile …. the lifts closed and we got this… more expected for the rest of the week.
Thanks to Greg Poschman (producter) and John Sturdy (DP) for this fabulous footage. Winter is just around the corner and soon it will be time to change out the tires.
Thanks to Bob Cohn of the Atlantic
– who tweeted me out….
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.

I like to keep the battery between 150-265 miles. That increases the life of the battery.
The best lunch in Aspen as far as I’m concerned is at Bonnie’s which just happens to be on Ajax.
So, what do I do while the Tesla is charging?

Ski a few laps of course….

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.
