Electric Car Charging

Mountain Village Charging Stations

There are currently three public, Level 2, dual-port EV charging stations within Mountain Village; 40 amp, J1772 ChargePoint charger and an eight post-Tesla Supercharger station on level 5 of the Gondola Parking Garage, ChargePoint station on level P1 of the Heritage Parking Garage, and ChargePoint station in the southwest corner of the Meadows Parking Lot.

All ChargePoint stations require a ChargePoint account to initiate a session. Visit ChargePoint.com to set up your free account. Through the ChargePoint app, your smartphone is the key to unlocking the charging station.


All ChargePoint stations within Mountain Village are $0.20 per kWh. Once fully charged, the Town allows drivers an hour grace period before a $10.00 per hour dwell charge goes into effect.

Electric vehicles are exempt from day/hourly parking fees only when actively charging. Once an EV is fully charged at one of our stations, there will be a one-hour grace period until the ChargePoint chargers begin assessing a $10/hr “Overtime Fee.” EV drivers will still need to pay posted day, hourly or overnight parking rates in regular stalls when not actively charging.

Mountain Village TESLA Supercharging Station

The Town of Mountain Village is now home to an eight-post Tesla Supercharging station at the entrance of the Gondola Parking Garage. Standard Tesla charging rates apply.
