Vail Resorts App Provides Crowd-Sourced Lift Line Wait Times to Guests

Vail Resorts has announced that EpicMix Time, an expansion of its ski and snowboard app giving guests access to real-time lift line wait times, is now available for both iOS and Android devices. Guests at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge and Keystone can now use lift line wait time data to better navigate the mountain and make the most out of their ski and ride experience. Leveraging recently developed technology, EpicMix Time will calculate and display up-to-the-minute lift line wait times at 55 core lifts and gondolas across 13,600 acres of skiable terrain in Colorado.

EpicMix Time provides transparency for lift line wait times, which helps our skiers and riders get the most out of their day on the mountain at our Colorado resorts, said Kirsten Lynch, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts.

Providing real-time lift line wait times is a first for the ski industry, said Robert Urwiler, Vail Resorts’ executive vice president and chief information officer. “We’re applying unique and sophisticated analytics to calculate reliable wait time information for our guests. As the season goes on, we’ll continue to ‘fine-tune’ the system to become more and more accurate.

In addition, we’re pairing GPS-enabled trail maps with the lift line wait times, added Urwiler. The ability to know precisely where you are on the map and see the wait times at the nearest lifts is going to be very powerful for helping guests navigate the mountain and find the best terrain options to maximize their day.
