Randy Bell, celebrated ski and snowboard instructor in Lake Tahoe’s Northstar Resort in California, shares his tips on teaching small children how to hit the slopes. Northstar is one of Vail Resort’s family-friendly destinations. Between the EpicMix (you can track your vertical and ski runs via computer), EpicMix Photo (free share-able pics by professionals all over the mountain) and the funky snowmobiles that shuttle kids to lifts to aid in the ease of learning – the mountain is an incredible family destination (and we’d highly recommend Randy!).

More on why it’s Epic:

EpicPass – the unlimited, unrestricted seasons pass – just one type of pass, there are number of other season pass options – every pass includes the use of
EpicMix to capture stats, vertical feet and mountains visited.

EpicMix – revolutionary technology for the ski industry, only available at Vail Resorts. Uses Radio Frequency (RF) scanners at the base of every lift, and RF technology built into every pass to capture your stats automatically as soon as you hit the slopes. No sign-up or registration required.

EpicMix photos – EpicMix photo sharing capabilities enable guests to share their on-mountain experiences.
