Heavenly Mountain’s devilish new device

It’s an epic year at Heavenly Mountain near Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

Heavenly Mountain Resort is no average hill. With nearly 5,000 skiable acres accessed by 29 lifts, and more than 3,500 thrilling feet of vertical rise, you could ride Lake Tahoe’s biggest resort all season long and still blaze new tracks. Mountain fans ranked Heavenly number 13 in the top 30 resorts according to SKI Magazine.

The mammoth mountain is crisscrossed with nearly 100 trails, making for 34 miles of impeccably groomed, wide-open lanes. Heavenly tops out with a summit elevation of more than 10,000 feet, and with 80 percent of its runs designated intermediate, expert and advanced, it will challenge even the best skiers and boarders. Daredevils can scream down 1,600-foot drops into double black diamonds, dodge bullets in some of the most unbelievable tree skiing on the continent, and get busy on the 80-foot jumps in the High Roller Terrain Park, one of four at the resort. And then there are the views. Heavenly more than earns its stripes with one of the most stunning lake views of any Lake Tahoe resort.    

The mountain has had a massive revitalization over the past eight years, which includes new lifts and trails, better snowmaking and grooming. There are other amenities there too, such as the Heavenly Sports Delivery team, which brings the rental shop right to your hotel room. Also new this season is the Ante Up terrain park, constructed entirely of recycled features.

And now for the devilish new device: for the 2010/2011 ski season, the exhilarating resort is introducing EpicMix, an online and mobile app that captures your experience on the mountain and uploads your activity to a dashboard. With EpicMix, you can follow your days skied, track your vertical feet, see where you rode, earn EpicMix digital pins for your achievements, and collect points. And when you earn a pin it will automatically update your social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

So not only can you enjoy great skiing, your friends can follow your activities as well.
