Important Epic Mix Feature

Who here has the Epic Mix app on their phone? If you do, you may not be aware of a feature that I just learned about yesterday: the ability to contact ski patrol.

The other day a friend of mine came upon someone badly injured on the trail. He opened his Epic Mix app, and there's a ski patrol icon on the right side of the upper green bar (see below). When he clicked on it, a member of patrol answered, asked for his location, and if it was an emergency. He said yes and told them where he was, and they had someone there in a matter of minutes.

I've opened this app numerous times and never noticed this before, so I thought I'd point it out in case anyone else is as oblivious as I am.

What a great feature! Saves having to think ahead and program the number into your phone (which I never remember to do) or find it somewhere on the trail map.

I wonder if the new Ikon app has it.

Good to know! Have you downloaded the JH app yet?

Definitely an advantage for VR that all their destination resorts are on the same app. I don't really like cluttering up my iPhone with apps that I'm only going to use for a week. Did download the Mammoth app to get a feel for whether or not I'd make use of it for a short stay.

Ikon has an app as well, I downloaded it but haven’t looked through it much. Will need to see if they have this feature for diva west. I have the Sunday River specific app as well, and they have an emergency button. Though there are 1.5 peaks on the mountain where I don’t get service and therefore hope those aren’t areas I ever need to call for help! Though they are also quick skis to a lift to get help that way if I weren’t injured myself.

The Ikon app also has another good feature. You can add friends who also have the app and when you bring up the resort map, it shows you where your friends are.

Yes. The Ikon map does have it. It only shows up when you are at a resort. I also like the map feature that @Soujan mentioned. I made a restroom trip and was able to check where Bob was on the mountain so I didn’t have to stand outside the whole time. I just went out to meet him when I saw he unloaded at the top.

I need to check to see if the Epic Mix app has that feature........ also, totally thread drift, but I see you have the Head Wild Joy..... Sierra Trading has one pair left in a 153 (my size) for $199..... what am I waiting for?

Ok, maybe I’ll download it, then. The locate feature does seem like it could be helpful, too.
