Skiers and snowboarders at Vail’s five mountains seem to love the program, and EpicMix fan sites have even started popping up. The app is a free download for iPhone and Android, but only RF-enabled Vail season pass holders can use it.
Here’s what MediaPost says about the app:
Some apps really take advantage of being, well, apps. Vail Epic Mix does just that by utilizing all that is good about the iPhone to provide a pocketful of tracking, information and sharing functionality to skiers and boarders at Vail, Colorado. EpicMix automatically tracks vertical feet covered, provides full trail maps, weather information, mountain cams, run and lift conditions. It rounds out the mix by allowing for sharing with friends, even competing with fellow skiiers or boarders.
As always, my opinions do not reflect those of my employer.
