We want your EpicMix Photos

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a blast getting EpicMix photos taken this season. When someone tags Heavenly in a really creative pic or tweets a funny EpicMix photo at us it makes me want to dress up crazy and take the biggest, sweetest, most over the top EpicMix photo of the year.

We want to see what you’ve got so here’s the deal: we’ll send a Heavenly swag bag to the person that shares the best weekly photo with us. On April 5th we’re going to set up a gallery of our favorite photos. Everyone can vote for which they like best and whoever uploaded that photo will win a 2014/2015 season pass.
What are we looking for? Creativity. High energy. Coordination. A thoughtful set up.

Come to the mountain with your own photo idea or have one of our EpicMix Photographers set you up for a pose like…

    I would love to provide some pictures for you, but I can’t because they must be posted to Facebook or tweeted. Not everybody uses these types of social media and should not be punished for not trusting how Twitter and Facebook use our information. In the future, please allow sharing with something other than Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. There should be a way to share them directly from the EpicMix app.

    Hey There-
    The contest is just for Heavenly, not for all of Vail so it would be hard to make a change to the app. Please send your best photo or two to skiheavenly@gmail.com and we will put them in the running.
    Not all of our contests are socially based, but the voting for the season pass will be held on Facebook. Thanks!
