Club Intrawest, a boutique private vacation Club, has installed electric vehicle charging points at the Club Intrawest – Tremblant location. This is the first installation in the Club’s plan to introduce electric vehicle charging stations at five Club Intrawest locations. Besides the Tremblant, Quebec location, charging stations will also be installed at the Club locations in Whistler, British Columbia; Blue Mountain, Ontario; Sandestin, Florida; and Palm Desert, California. These four additional sites will be completed in the spring of 2015.
Each charging station will consist of a Tesla Wall Connector and a ClipperCreek HCS-40 universal charger for all other brands of electric vehicles. The chargers will be available to Club Intrawest Members and guests on a complementary basis.
“We are excited to offer this new amenity to our Members and guests”, said Robert Reyes, VP of Member Experience. “This is the next evolution of our Thinking Green program where we strive to provide extraordinary vacation experiences while lowering our environmental imprint. Enabling our Members to visit the Club driving electric vehicles certainly helps us achieve our mission”.
This program will help introduce new consumers to Club Intrawest. Tesla vehicles are equipped with 17″ touchscreens which drivers can use to locate charging stations. The five Club Intrawest locations equipped with Tesla chargers will now appear to Tesla drivers on the in-vehicle screens as well as the Tesla website. To encourage this new feature, Tesla Motors will be also hosting test drives of the All-Wheel Drive Dual Motor Model S this month for Members and guests of Club Intrawest – Tremblant.
