Epic Mix: The New Social App Skiing
Hands up if you got to check out Vail Resort’s RFID based EpicMix social skiing/boarding platform in 2010/11? Well, it’s back for the 2011/12 season and this time it’s smarter, faster, has even more badges and integrates all the resort photographer’s photos seamlessly into the EpicMix app.
EpicMix is an RFID lift ticket system that integrates with an iOS/Android app, website and your social networks to provide the ultimate mountain experience. The RFID chip in each lift ticket tracks you across the entire mountain, and that, combined with the smartphone app and website provides rewards, badges, live friend connectivity and a full rage of stats as you explore the mountain.
This year, the headline feature addition is the app re-design and integration of photo’s that instantly appear on skiiers’ EpicMix account when taken by the resorts pro photographers or via the app.
