Trip report. Broomfield, CO to Winter Park ski area. 80 miles each way but over the continental divide. 2 full size men with ski gear. Average temp was probably 15F. 5600 feet MSL to to 9,100 feet . Highest elevation reached was 11,300 (and -2F). Started trip with 300 miles range. Arrived at Winter Park with 163 miles remaining. Regen on the return trip was limited due to temps, but I still arrived back home with 84 miles remaining. Model 3 AWD with Michelin X-Ice snow tires does great in the mountains. Love being able to accelerate uphill and control descents without breaking. Only issue was on the return I had to use pretty much constant high defrost to keep the side windows from fogging up.
