Chapter 1

Jess has the option to check her phone or read a book while waiting at the cable car station. Regardless of which option she chooses, she is startled by Mike's snowball which was thrown towards her head.

Chapter 2

After Mike and Jess are sent out of the lodge to the guest cabin, Jess asks the pair for a selfie, which Mike takes using Jess' phone.

Chapter 3

Jess uses her phone to record Mike's reaction to her prank with a deer head. Jess shows the video on her phone to Mike.

Jess then realizes she lost her phone in the cabin, revealing it was her fourth one this year. She may blame Mike for the disappearance due to Mike possibly scaring her at the river.

While Jess and Mike begin to settle in, a smash is heard from the cabin's bathroom window. Mike finds Jess' phone on the ground, playing Hey, Hey, Hey (It's Gonna Be OK). Jess comes to take her phone and storms outside to yell at who she thinks are the others.

Chris' Phone

Chapter 1

Chris' phone is first seen sticking out of his bag and notified near the lower cable car station. Sam may choose to snoop on his phone and see that Ashley had sent him a text message. Chris sees Sam snooping and gets annoyed at her, taking his phone back.

Chapter 2

Chris' phone is briefly used at the start of the chapter, holding his phone up explaining to Josh he is having poor signals up on the mountain. Josh jokes that if Chris has a million dollars, he will install some cell towers.

Chapter 6

The phone is again briefly seen while Ashley and Chris are searching for Sam in the basement of the lodge. Chris uses his phone at the moment when Ashley spots a ghost walking by. Chris missed the ghost and Ashley then scolds Chris for looking at his phone.
