EpicMix Academy is the newest addition to the EpicMix family of guest offerings at Vail Resorts and will be available to all students this winter at Kirkwood Ski and Ride School. No more boring report cards at the end of lessons. EpicMix Academy is an online, interactive platform that collects and displays a student’s lesson information. Each student or parent will be given a card with instructions on how to set up their EpicMix account when they finish a lesson. (Hint: It’s very easy!)
Once the account is active students will be able to view what they accomplished in their lesson, who their instructor was, what the next steps are in the learning process, as well as, be able to earn pins for specific on mountain accomplishments. An example of an on mountain accomplishment could be a first intermediate run or skiing/riding 5 days in a row.
This is an exciting new program for our Ski & Ride School at Kirkwood. We are looking forward to streamlining the learning process for our guests, making for an even better all around experience. I know our instructors are looking forward to the EpicMix Academy too as it will be useful to know what students have accomplished in previous lessons, but more so, it will be fun to help them earn specific learning pins that they want.
