epicmixEpicMix is a whole new way of skiing and capturing your experience on film. You no longer have to worry about carrying your camera on the slopes and having to stop in your tracks on the mountain. Photographers are scattered around the mountain taking photographs and the photos are captured on your EpixMix card, which also serves as your lift ticket. You slip the card inside your pocket and it manages to capture all the day’s memories on a code. Professional photographers are positioned all over the slopes where EpicMix is featured, which is currently at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone, Heavenly and Northstar (all in Colorado), snapping pictures of you and your family. At the end of your trip, or while you’re there, you just login into your Epic Mix account online and view your photos which you have an option of ordering.

EpicMix doesn’t only take pictures, it tracks your vertical feet and mountains and what lifts you ride daily. You can also earn pins for special accomplishments and milestones.

What’s key to remember about buying your EpicMix lift tickets is that it really, really, really pays to buy them in advance for the lowest price. If you wait until after you arrive, you will pay full price at the ticket window. Online purchases must be 7 days in advance to be eligible for the discount. This also ensures enough time to ship your tickets in the mail if needed – allowing you to go straight to the lift when you arrive (14 days in advance is required for international shipping). You can also save on lift tickets as part of a Lift & Lodging Vacation Deal (package).

Best of all, you can download the EpicMix app, free on iTunes, and track your vertical feet while on the slopes, as well as your children’s (their tracking will be connected to your card as you have to be 18 to qualify for your own account). EpicMix really takes skiing and photography to a new dimension!
