Ratings and Reviews
While the Epic app has some vital information on it there are so many ways they could improve it. The Whistler Blackcomb app they had before Vail changed it was much better and honest.
No smoke and mirrors please. The longest the Epic app ever said a wait to get on a lift was 40 minutes. Come on...that wasn’t even close on quality days with Covid protocols. So far from the truth that to me (and many many others) it took away from the credibility of the app and the company. They also were very poor at updating the lift wait times. That is an easy fix. For example on Sunday March 28 I went up at 12 ish and the wait time still said 40 minutes which locals know could be 90 minutes. It was a 5 minute wait. Making a call to the Alpine office to update the status is not hard. It should be reported or adjusted many times per hour well alone throughout the day.
The old app told us the temperatures at the valley, mid station, and the top. Which way the winds were/are blowing, and a detailed forecast for the next couple of days. The forecast section of the app was an insult to anybody who has spent anytime here. The patrollers do a detailed forecast at least twice a day so the information is readily available. Why not share it?
It wouldn’t take much to improve this. Hopefully next season.
App clunky and not user friendly
This app is super clunky. I have a family of five, and when making reservations, if I choose all five, I lose my reservation because the app tells me that the date is no longer available. If I go back in, and only put myself, then I get the reservation. I spent all morning (literally 4 hours) getting a reservation for the 5 of us because when availability came open, I could only reserve 1 at a time. Vail Resorts needs to figure out a way to show how many spots are available at a given time. Also, it needs to have the functionality of being able to switch reservations for a different resort on the same day in the same screen. If I have a reservation at Vail but decide I want to ski Beaver Creek instead, I have to go delete Vail reservation, and then go back in to get the BC reservation (major risk of losing both!!).
Also, not sure why Vail Resorts did away with family stats. It was always nice knowing where my kids were on the mountain when in ski school (they also don’t own phones, so I can’t just call them).
Get it together, VR!
Needs face recognition
Yesterday I counted 17 runs but the app shows 7? Also, every time I access the app I need to sign in which is a total hassle with ski gloves on. Fave recognition would be an easy solution. Also, I would recommend an interactive map that shows where you are and how to get to where you want to go. This would help with unfamiliarity of the mountain and keep people from getting lost. There are plenty of Navigation maps such as Waze, Google maps etc that could help communicate the lift lines and help move skiers around the mountain to relieve those lines. Secondly, it could help with search and rescue efforts offering pin point locations. Lastly, adding the ability to load funds on a pass for the lodge, rentals, etc would speed up the transaction times at the lodges, restaurants and rental shops. In fact, historical could be kept on the pass for rental preferences, lodging and accommodation history for easy reference. The cash payments kept of the ski pass could be tethered to a credit card for extra protection to the skier and to prevent fraud and / or historical data.
Hope these suggestions help and are received in the spirit they were intended. Tommy Hogan
