Your guide to EpicMix
You use your smart phone for everything, so why not use it to plan, execute and brag about your next ski or snowboard trip? For making the most of your next vacation, ski season or weekend trip, here’s your guide to Vail Resorts’ EpicMix.
EpicMix accounts are free with purchase of a day pass or season pass to any Vail Resort. Just sign up at Epicmix.com and cruise on. Upon arrival at the resort, the RF technology built into your pass logs each run at Breckenridge, Keystone, Vail, Beaver Creek, Canyons at Park City, Kirkwood, Heavenly, Northstar, Afton Alps and Mt. Brighton. Keep track of your turns and stats on the slopes with the mobile app or on the EpicMix website.
Additionally, EpicMix tracks how many vertical feet you’ve ridden, allowing you to compare this season with those in the past and see if your friends and family can keep up. Check the leader boards and see how you stack up against some of the local ski bums and professional shredders.
You can also sync your EpicMix account to your social media networks, allowing you to easily share EpicMix photos and check-ins with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. Go ahead, brag a little about the pow you’re skiing on spring break.
EpicMix rewards skiers and boarders with “pins” for on-hill accomplishments, such as skiing every peak at Breck in one day, logging a record number of vertical feet in a season, attending events and even for getting out on the hill for 80 days in one winter! How many pins can you stack up?
If racing is your thing, EpicMix lets you race against your friends and Olympic gold medalist, Lindsey Vonn. All you have to do is race ten times or more throughout the season at Epic Mix racecourses. Top qualifiers will be selected to race in the annual Lindsey Vonn Race Series event on March 28, 2015.
EpicMix Guide allows you to plan your perfect day on the hill so you don’t get stuck on the bunny slopes when you’re craving black diamonds. The Guide allows you to customize a step-by-step plan to experience your best day at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Canyons in Park City, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood. Find out more on Breck’s EpicMix site, and you’ll be skiing like a local in no time.
