EpicMix Time

Wish there was a way to know lift line wait times before clicking in? Thanks to EpicMix Time, Vail Resorts’ latest addition to its app, now you can. Using crowd-sourced WiFi and Bluetooth signals to estimate lift line wait times, skiers and riders can now efficiently navigate the mountain more efficiently, maximizing ski time. Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone will be inaugurating this ground-breaking technology during the 2015/16 season to bring real-time chairlift and gondola line wait times across 55 core lifts and 13,600 acres of skiable terrain. This feature will be available at all Vail Resorts’ mountains for the 2016/17 ski season.
