Well Vail Resorts now have you covered with EpicMix Time. EpicMix Time uses crowd-sourced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals to estimate lift time waits for consumers. The software will be installed at Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and Keystone for the 2015-2016 season, and will expand during the 2016-2017 winter.
