The 5th Generation EpicMix App

Published: January 8, 2015

Real Estate of the Summit 5th Generation EpicMix AppVail Resorts released the 5th generation EpicMix app last month that introduces new navigation features through the EpicMix Guide. In addition to tracking location, vertical feet, and lift usage, the EpicMix Guide will now feature planning capabilities that coordinate your every turn down the mountain.

The Epic experience, provided by the 5th generation EpicMix app, is linked directly to season and short-term ski passes. The RFID chip in a Vail Resorts ski pass can track the location of every single skier on the mountain. While following your trail, the chip generates data related to the total vertical feet reached by each individual and tracks the different lifts you use to maneuver the mountain. Just stick your pass in the pocket of your winter jacket and lift line scanners will catch it through your clothing! After a long day on the hill, you can head back to the resort and enjoy gratifying statistics on the accomplishments you made that day!

Who needs a local? Upgrades to the 5th generation EpicMix app introduce navigation assistance based off of terrain and difficulty preferences and compile a variety of ski itineraries to follow during your daily mountain endeavors. Much like driving a car, this navigation system will keep you from straying off course or getting lost in unfamiliar terrain. Simply punch in the time frame you have and the type of skiing you prefer and EpicMix Guide will provide you with your ideal day on the slopes.

What does Real Estate of the Summit find most favorable about these new features? Each time you enter in your preferences online, the system will generate over 350 different itineraries for you to follow. This provides the average skier with days of entertainment and even better, little to no stress while spending a day on the mountain!

There are also a number of new features for our tech savvy children to incorporate into their Ski & Ride School adventures! With a kid friendly layout, your child may access their account online and track daily lesson progress and can visually hold the satisfaction of their accomplishments through certified pins. Share these achievements with family connected to different social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Register each one of your passes at today by using the code inscribed on the back of the ticket! Make sure to install the 5th generation EpicMix app on your cellular phone and let your dream ski vacation begin!
