  EpicMix Pins
Earn pins and points for skiing on special occasions, covering new terrain, breaking milestones in total days skied and vertical feet and more!


Here's how the technology behind EpicMix works:

  • All Season Passes, Epic Day Cards and Peaks Cards are equipped with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification).
  • EpicMix calculates vertical feet based on each chairlift you ride. Gantries are located at various locations at each chairlift and read your pass as you go by.
  • In order to increase scan accuracy, wear your pass in a chest pocket or an arm pocket. Do not place your pass in your wallet or carry electronic devices in the same location as your pass.
  • EpicMix is a passive application, which means it’s easier for you! You don’t have to tell EpicMix to start tracking your activity on the mountain because we do it for you automatically. Since each pass
  • is scanned at the chairlift, EpicMix can start tracking your stats even before you activate your account. You can view all of your past activity whenever you activate your account.
  • The Leaderboard in EpicMix is based on earning the highest number of points. Points are earned for achieving pins and vertical feet.
  • Before participating in an EpicMix Photo or Race your pass is scanned so we make sure your data is associated to your account.

**For free on mountain photography, look for EpicMix photographers in the following locations on Vail Mountain:

  • Top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola (designated portait area! Great for larger groups, amazing views of Mt. of the Holy Cross in the background)
  • Top of Chairs 4/5/11 (view of the Gore Range, Back Bowls, Blue Sky Basin, hint: look for friendly patrol dogs to take photos with)
  • Top of Chair 2
  • Top of Chair 3

  • Lionshead and Golden Peak Ski School
  • Adventure Ridge Tubing hill
