Skiing Just Got Better! EpicMix is Premiering in Keystone!

Vail Resorts unveiled a brand new online and mobile application EpicMIX.com that will allow skiers and riders a way to digitally capture and share their on-mountain experience every time they ski!

EpicMix allows Vail Resorts guests, at any of its five world-class mountain resorts–Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Heavenly–to effortlessly utilize technology to digitally capture their ski and ride experience and share it with friends and family.

AND it’s Premiering at KEYSTONE resort on 11/05/2010. Get lodging deals now for Keystone and Breckenridge for this winter season and be able to use EpicMix to show off your ski vacation!

EpicMix automatically captures the activity of guests throughout each of its resorts, by leveraging Vail Resorts’ state-of-the-art radio frequency (RF) scanners that are being installed at each of its 89 lifts across all five mountain resorts. An RF-enabled chip embedded in Vail Resorts’ season passes and PEAKS lift tickets will automatically track guests’ lift rides, calculating vertical feet skied and days on the mountain and will recognize special achievements and accomplishments by granting guests commemorative, collectible digital pins. EpicMix will have hundreds of available digital pins for a multitude of unique experiences available at each resort. Epic Mix will even provide trail and grooming information, snow and weather reports, as well as resort news and traffic updates. What more could you ask for?
Its like mixing Facebook, Twitter, Gowalla, and Satski into one little chip that is in your ski pass! EpicMix even has a version of the application for the kids!

The application is embedded into Vail Resorts’ existing season pass and PEAKS lift tickets. EpicMix can be used by any guest at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Heavenly, whether they purchase a season pass or a PEAKS single day lift ticket. EpicMix will launch on opening day at Keystone Mountain on Nov. 5, 2010.
