Town of Snowmass Village 130 Kearns Road PO Box 5010 Snowmass Village, Colorado 81615 EASEMENT AGREEMENT (Landing Site and Aerial Tramway On and Across Base Village Lot 3) This Easement Agreement (this "Agreement") is entered into this I y day of /�1h , 2016 between SNOWMASS ACQUISITION COMPANY LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Grantor") and the TOWN OF SNOWMASS VILLAGE, COLORADO, a Colorado municipal corporation (the "Town.). Recitals A. Grantor is the owner of Lot 3, according to the Base Village P.U.D. Final Plat recorded February 2, 2006 at Reception No. 520483, Plat Book 77, Page 30, Pitkin County, Colorado records ("Lot 3"). B. The Town may desire to construct, or permit the construction of, a tramway transit system (the "Tramway") from the "Snowmass Center" property more particularly identified on Exhibit A attached hereto to a landing site located on Lot 3, as more particularly depicted on Exhibit B (the "Landing Site"). C. Grantor desires to grant an easement to the Town to permit such Tramway to connect to the Landing Site. Agreement In consideration of the foregoing, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which the parties hereto hereby acknowledge, the parties hereto agree as follows: 1. Tramway Easement. Grantor hereby grants to the Town a nonexclusive perpetual easement, which shall burden the Easement Area (defined below) for the benefit of the Town, for the purpose of the Town's or the Town's designee's construction, operation, maintenance, repair, and replacement of a tramway tower upon the Landing Site (the "Tower"), for overhead tramway passage, for overhead utilities installed on the Tower, including telephone, fiber optic cable, and water lines, for the operation and maintenance of the Tramway, and for emergency evacuation of passengers of the Tramway as necessary, and shall be subject to the following conditions (hereinafter, the "Tramway Easement"). The location of the Tramway Easement is shown graphically on Exhibit B attached hereto and incorporated herein by this reference. The "Easement Area" shall be the Landing Site and those portions of Lot 3 located within the hatched area shown on Exhibit B. 1 (a) The Tramway Easement shall consist of the minimum necessary to accommodate a tramway that meets the Tramway Board specifications which may consist of, as a minimum, a 19-foot 10-inch wide corridor and a 34-foot clear zone on each side of the corridor as shown on Exhibit B attached hereto and made a part hereof. It is specifically understood and agreed that the exact alignment of the Tramway may be altered by the Town (including changing the commencement point of the Tramway to the "Point" site adjacent to the Snowmass Center) and that the as-built location may deviate from the location shown on Exhibit B by a maximum of 50 feet to provide the most efficient and economical route for the Tramway as reasonably determined by the Town. Any deviation of more than 50 feet shall require Grantor approval in writing and in advance. In furtherance of the foregoing, the Town agrees that no alignment of the Tramway may interfere with the construction of"Building 7" on Lot 3 (as currently entitled)or require any modification or additional setback from either"Building 7" or the Capitol Peak Lodge Condominium located adjacent to Lot 3. (b) Grantor shall have unrestricted rights to build roads or trails on Lot 3 within the Tramway Easement and to travel across the Tramway Easement. However, subject to Section 1(c)below, neither party may build any above-ground structures of any sort within the Tramway Easement unless specifically approved in writing by the Colorado Passenger Tramway Safety Board (the "Board"), and neither party may use the Easement Area in a manner that interferes with the operation of the Tramway. (c) The Landing Site is located between the partially constructed Building 7 on Lot 3 and a portion of Capitol Peak Lodge Condominium. The Town agrees that the alignment and construction of the Tramway shall not interfere with the completion of construction of Building 7 or require any modification to the design of Building 7 as described in Town Ordinance No. 9, Series 2015. Should the design of the Tramway result in an encroachment of Building 7 into the Tramway Easement in a way not permitted, by right, under the rules of the Board, the parties agree to amend this Agreement to ensure that the Tramway Easement does not impair Grantor's legal right to construct Building 7 as presently entitled. (d) The Town shall have a right of access to the Tower at all reasonable times for the purpose of maintaining,servicing, repairing,and replacing said Tower. (e) The Town agrees that the Tramway shall be constructed so that the operation of the Tramway does not impair use of the existing improvements located on Lot 3, the future construction and operation of Building 7, or the use of any parking areas or driveways located within the Tramway Easement. (f) Subject to the foregoing criteria, the Tramway shall be constructed, interpreted, and used in a way that will not otherwise impair, obstruct or interfere with Grantor's ability to develop and use Lot 3 to the fullest extent possible,as may be(or has been previously)approved by the Town. (g) After construction of the Tramway, the Town (or its designee) shall provide at its expense a survey showing the as-built locations of the Tramway Easement and the Tower. If the as-built locations of the aerial tramway and tramway Tower differ from the easement area described in this Agreement, the parties shall execute and record an amendment to this Agreement to conform the legal description of the Tramway Easement Area with the as-built locations. Unless otherwise mutually agreed, such amendment shall provide only that it amends the legal description of the location of the easement, and shall not amend this Agreement in any other way. Nothing herein shall be construed as Grantor's consent to the Town's construction of the Tramway outside of the Tramway Easement, as the same may be modified as provided herein, at locations different than those shown on Exhibit B, and the parties' agreement to execute an amendment for as-built locations is intended only 2 to accommodate inadvertent discrepancies between the Tramway Easement defined herein and the as- built locations. (h) The Town shall construct and service the Tramway Easement with insured contractors. The Town acknowledges that Grantor shall not be required to make any modifications to the Landing Site pursuant to this Agreement. (i) The Town shall at all times assure that the Tramway operator carries public and general liability insurance on the Tramway Easement area and hazard insurance on the Tower and appurtenances thereto located in the Tramway Easement, with policy limits no less than required by law, and the Town or the Tramway operator shall produce proof of insurance upon request of Grantor. 2. Hold Harmless and Indemnity. The Town shall cause the Tramway operator to defend, indemnify,and hold harmless Grantor(or thethen owner ofLot 3 and the Landing Site)from and against any and all claims arising from (i) use of the Tramway Easement; (ii) the negligence of such operator or any of its agents, contractors or employees;and(iii) all costs, attorney's fees, expenses and liabilities incurred in the defense of any such claim or any action or proceedings brought thereon. In no event, however, shall Grantor be entitled to indemnification under this Section if such claim arises from any breach or default in the performance of any obligation on Grantor's part to be performed under the terms of this Agreement,or arising from any negligence of Grantor,or any of Grantor's agents,contractors or employees. 3. Insurance. The Town shall, or shall cause the Tramway operator to, keep and maintain commercial general liability insurance against claims for personal injury, bodily injury, death or property damage occurring upon, in, near or about the Tramway Easement,such insurance(a)to be on the so-called "occurrence" form with a combined single limit of not less than $1,000,000.00 (which limit shall be increased to $2,000,000.00 upon commencement of passenger tramway operations); and (b)to cover at least the following hazards: (1) premises and operations; (2) independent contracts; and (3) blanket contractual liability for all written contracts to the extent the same is available. All public liability insurance policies shall name Grantor as an additional insured. The Town shall provide Grantor with certificates of such insurance on each anniversary of this Agreement, provided no certificates shall be required until construction of the Tramway commences. No required policy may be canceled or subject to reduction of coverage or other modification without ten (10) days prior written notice to Grantor. In the event of damage to Lot 3 covered by insurance carried by the Town or the Tramway operator, the applicable proceeds shall be used to repair and restore Lot 3. 4. Notices. All notices or demands of any kind pursuant to this Agreement shall be in writing and may be delivered by personal service, by facsimile, or by mailing a copy thereof by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, addressed to the respective parties at the addresses specified in the preamble to this Agreement, or at such other addresses as may from time to time be designated by such parties in writing.

The report is based upon a conceptual alignment provided as part of the planning process for The Snowmass Center Project' (Center). Other potential alignments from the Snowmass Center maybe possible, but are ... 1� limited by the constraints of crossing privately owned and developed proponent and / or the proposed configuration of the Base Village project. The report consists of (1) a review of the existing ridership study and proposed projects that may influence ridership; (2) a study of the conceptual alignment and verification of the practicability of the alignment and (3) a discussion of potential systems and technical parameters including a recommendation for the most appropriate system for this alignment. SE GROUP Senior Associates from the Frisco, Colorado office and Park City, Utah office, independently reviewed the information provided by Design Workshop and project transportation consultants2. In December, 2002, these SE GROUP personnel observed the site area, proposed top and bottom terminal locations, and route. �•► Personnel also observed potential aerial system terminal locations and alignments proposed by others, that may influence the alignment or technology applicable to the Center project. The Snowmass Mall (Mall) area was also reviewed during the observation trip. Conceptual level plans for the Snowmass Base Village project (Base Village) were .�, reviewed and conceptually discussed with Town of Snowmass Village planners for basic planning parameters such as development concept, and relationship to Town of Snowmass Transportation plans. The Town planning office also provided a copy of the Town of Snowmass Village Comprehensive Plan,Transportation Plan section. Elements of the Transportation Plan that provide guidance for the connections of an aerial system from Town Center are: • Improving inadequate linkages for pedestrians between employee housing Snowmass Center and the Mall, • Suggested improvement of transit centers at Base Village and Town Center, and • Inclusion of people movers as part of long range pedestrian linkages.

REVIEW OF RIDERSHIP STUDY AND PROPOSED PROJECTS THAT MAY INFLUENCE RIDERSHIP LSC Transportation Consultants, Inc. completed a ridership study for a gondola type system as part of the October 18, 2002 transportation and parking analyses identified earlier. This study was based on the alignment proposed by the Snowmass Center `r project planners, approximately 1600 feet long and transiting between the Center, the "" proposed Base Village, with a further link to the Mall. The basic purposes of the people mover proposed by Snowmass Center are: • Further the TOSV Comprehensive Plan Goal of creating a cohesive town core by linking the Mall,Base Village and the Center • Provide the transportation of skiers, riders, guests and employees to and from the Center • Provide the transportation of skiers, riders, guests and employees to and from the Center • Provide connections to shopping or skiing at Mall and Base Village • Provide connections from Mall and Base Village to Center for shopping and service needs(e. g., municipal services and Post Office) At the Base Village, connections on foot or by continuous system were assumed to new lifts to skiing or gondola to the Mall. The LSC study considered the locations of proposed projects that may affect ridership. These projects were also considered by SE GROUP. The Base Village ,., project proposes that a gondola be constructed to provide access to skiing on the eastern flanks of Snowmass Mountain. The ski area owner has proposed a cabriolet type gondola system from Base Village to the Mall. A new express type chair lift (Sam's Knob Express) would be developed to mover skiers from the Base Village area to the top of Sam's Knob. The Fanny Hill lift would be removed. A new children's center would be constructed in the Base Village, with on-hill teaching moved further up the mountain. Technology and ridership of the Center people mover system will be affected by the ease of accessibility to the overall revised lift system. It will be necessary to provide direct sight lines between systems or provide well-done signage and way finding systems to ensure rider comfort. 2 March/8,2003 v • tij Snowmass Town Center 1/37 A.r Aerial People Mover System Project Technical Revie i SE GROUP Key points of operation were: • No capacity constraints and no cost to riders • Operation of the gondola would be continuous throughout the day (operations hours would be consistent with work and shopping hours) • Gondola would provide a(relatively convenient)connection to other lifts Another point relating to operations, not expressed directly by LSC, is that the system is assumed to be a gondola, thereby assuming the occupants would be in an enclosed cabin and relatively protected from the elements. This assumption rules out open systems such as cabriolets and chair lifts. Alternatively, ridership would be greatly reduced during inclement weather. Ridership was projected from work trips by Snowmass Village residents and non- residents and non-working trips within and entering and exiting Snowmass Village by .. customers and skiers within one quarter mile of the Center project. As quoted in the LSC gondola ridership study: "... it is estimated that 75 percent of the potential work trips along the corridor would utilize the gondola, along with 50 percent of the non-work trips assuming a direct convenient connection between the two gondola terminals at the Base Village. If a walk of several hundred yards is required between the two Base Village gondola terminals, it is estimated that these proportions would be reduced by 25 percent." Direct comparisons of this complete people mover system, (connections between shopping and work areas in this case, rather than simply between parking and skiing, or lodging and skiing), are limited. The SE GROUP has considered the factors used in the LSC ridership study based on other known, existing and proposed systems, including the cabriolet at The Canyons, Utah, the proposed Beaver Creek gondola system from Avon, and the Telluride system. SE GROUP concludes that the basic factors used by LSC (75% of potential work trips and 50% of non-work trips) are well-within reasonable parameters. It should be noted that these characteristics are time-of-day dependent, with a high proportion of skiers during peak morning and afternoon periods during the ski season. SE GROUP agrees with the basic LSC estimation of a 25 percent reduction of ridership if terminals are placed which require walks of several hundred yards. It should also be pointed out that ridership will be further reduced if stairs or large grade changes are required. This is likely more significant than distance when under 150 yards. In addition, uncovered distances, or over-snow distances of any length, will reduce ridership for non-ski related activities during inclement weather. Distance and grade change will affect the ability of the system to accommodate physically challenged persons, parents with small children or persons carrying packages. Distances 3 March/8.2003 Nair Nome .Snowmass Town Center Aerial People Mover System Project Technical Review ‘wor /71" SE GROUP between terminals or destinations (shopping, services) should be measured in time rather than distance. Optimum times are in the range of one to two minutes. The placement of the upper terminal for the connection to the Mall will also affect ridership. "Dry shoe"access and ADA accessibility will be important factors. �% If the transit system is revised to add skiers or shoppers to the Center project for the current projections, additional capacity will be needed on the system. This will be the case, by default, if the people-mover system is seen by users to be a more convenient way of accessing the mountain for skiing, rather than by continuing on bus transit up `" to the existing transit center. •..• For the Center system to provide a "non-stop" connection to the Mall, ridership between the Center and Village legs will need to be approximately equal to that from Base Village to Mall. It is very likely that the ridership demand from Base Village to "0 Mall will exceed Center to Base Village ridership. For the purposes of a people mover system, as proposed by Snowmass Center, the ridership calculated by LSC is appropriate, within the additional considerations above. LSC recommends a Design Volume of 299 persons in the peak hour and a total daily Design Volume of 2,808 persons for ridership with the one quarter mile distance. ti. These volumes will be used in the following discussion of alignment, technology and cost. 2. REVIEW OF ALIGNMENT AND VERIFICATION OF '4` PRACTICABILITY OF ALIGNMENT The people mover alignment has been conceptualized and outlined in the PUD submittal for the project. The alignment would be approximately 1,600 feet long. As aligned, the system would pass over roads and parking, as well as between buildings. These are typical situations and do not pose significant technical difficulties. As noted earlier, the alignment and terminal locations will have a significant effect on ridership. The alignment, as proposed, will allow for the ridership projections by LSC Transportation Consultants to be achieved. As noted earlier, other potential locations were reviewed but were not consideredfeasible due to conflicts between the alignment and privately owned and developed lands, as well as the current plans for Base Village. Location of the top terminal "on grade" and closer to the center of the Base Village project would likely improve the ridership potential of the system and visitation to Base Village shops. 4 March 18,2003 Snowman Tower Center Aerial People Mover System P,jea Techniarl Review ,.r There is another possible location for a terminal at the plaza which is more central to SE GROUP the Base Village proposed gondola while maintaining reasonable distance to a connection to the Mall. However, the current design of the Base Village precludes an optimum alignment connection to a central location. As proposed in this report, the top terminal would be located approximately 130 feet west of the existing lower Fanny Hill lift terminal. The loading and unloading elevation would be approximately 8450 feet, which is the approximate load elevation of Fanny Hill. This elevation is planned to be slightly (2 to 3 feet) above the plaza elevation of Base Village. The slight rise in elevation allows for drainage and approximate values allow for final design adjustments. The intent is to be "on grade" 460 with the Base Village Plaza, and in plain view of Base Village guests planning transportation to Mall and Village Center. v .‘ 4 41: iz r Figure 1.Alignment looking south The lower terminal of the system is proposed to be located on the upper level of Village Center Building H. The terminal would be connected to the other parts of the project via an elevated walkway and elevators in the main building. This type of location is a relatively normal condition. Design of the building will need to consider the isolation of the drive system, noise and vibration, as well as fire protection concerns. Access for maintenance will also be needed. Colorado state regulations require at least 19 feet of clearance from the bottom of the cabin to a roadway. After review of the topography provided by Design Workshop, this clearance can be achieved without difficulty or exceptional height towers. Final tower height will need to be established with an accurate, complete ground survey and engineering of the system to include line tension and planned sagbetween towers. Current maximum tower heights as indicated in the Design Workshop PUD 5 March 3.2003 Snowiness 7own Center Aerial People Mover System Project Technical Review �.r "" SE GROUP submittal of 40 to 45 feet are reasonable; final heights could be up to 20 feet higher. •r depending on system engineering. After a review of the system purposes and operation parameters, the alignment outlined above best meets the identified criteria and has the following advantages: • Minimal impact on privately owned developed lands • Best opportunity for direct connection from Base Village to Mall • Central location to Snowmass Center project • Minimum impact on proposed Base Village plan Towers for typical systems are 24 to 36 inches in diameter. Towers are set on concrete foundations. Based on a review of the alignment, there appears to be sufficient area for location of towers. Tower locations will be established during final engineering; care will be needed in the vicinity of the top terminal to avoid interference with the Children's Center building(deck)design. Typical tower spacing away from terminals is between 100 and 400 feet. This variability will likely allow for placement of towers outside of road or utility corridors. The width of the corridor required for the alignment includes the system width, including cabins and required clearances from side objects, trees, buildings, etc. Typical corridor widths, except for distances to buildings, are 60 feet. The width is 35 feet from each rope from buildings. In the system proposed in this report, the width between ropes is 18.37 feet. The total corridor width between two buildings is .. 88.37 feet (44.19 feet from alignment centerline). Variances from this dimension are possible from Colorado Tramway Board and fire safety issues can be resolved for the buildings. me Additional clearance width from that shown in the PUD submittal is required in the vicinity of the proposed Base Village Children's Center.

Alignment looking north ,., The proposed top terminal will need to be designed so that exiting the cabins occurs approximately at-grade. This will establish the vertical clearances under the cabins as the system passes over or adjacent to the proposed Children's Center deck (shown on plan at elevation 8432 feet). One or two towers are normally required immediately prior to entry into a terminal. This, along with the vertical clearance considerations, will determine the final location of the terminal along the alignment. 3. POTENTIAL SYSTEMS AND TECHNICAL PARAMETERS Several types of aerial systems are available to support the purposes of the people mover system (transportation of workers, guests and residents between Snowmass Center and Base Village, with connection to the Mall). The manner by which passengers may be moved vertically (in up and down directions) without rails or guideways is referred to as "passenger ropeway" technology. A number of alternative technologies are available and have been applied throughout the world, for •• basic transportation, tourism, and/or recreation. Many applications are European, while others are commonly used in the United States. Recent eco-tourism projects in developing countries have used passenger ropeway technology to minimize tourism impacts and protect environmental resources. Typical chair lift systems would be capable of transporting skiers between the - locations. The system would not, however, well-serve shopping, worker transportation or night operations due to the open design. Therefore, chair lifts are not considered any further. ..r March 3,2003 t i ry 411M° Snowman Town Center Aerial People Mover System Project Technical Review Gondola systems(multiple cabins,supported by wire SE GROUP rope)have the capability to support the purposes of — ` .+e'y✓ the system. Various types of gondolas and capacities are available. Detachable grip systems have high relative line speeds with slow loading and unloading speeds. Fixed grip systems have a relatively low line - .� speed to allow for loading and unloading. The f advantage of either system is that riders can enter and "1r . , *NO, depart the system effectively "on-demand''. Figure 3.Gondola systems Pulse Gondolas use fixed grip technology and stop. or slow, at each terminal (similar to a reversible tramway system, hence the name "pulse"). Cabins are grouped clusters of 2 to 4(sometimes more) and r located on the line in opposites of 2 or 4,both ) �' • determined by capacity demands. Pulse systems require equal distance between stops. Depending on system requirements,line speeds are equivalent of other gondola systems. ... Figure 4.Pulse Gondolas Cabriolets are open cabin systems;they can be detachable . grip, fixed grip,or pulse type systems. Cabins on any system can vary in size from 2 to 10(or more)persons per cabin, again depending on capacity required. 1,11114.— firoN 11 Figure 5.Cabriolets Ride times for a continuously circulating gondola, using detachable systems at 1,000 ,, feet per minute would be 1.6 minutes. A pulse system, with a similar line speed and slowing for loading in stations would result in a ride time of 2.75 minutes. A fixed grip system pulse gondola, operating at 300 to 400 feet per minute, would result in a 4 to 5.3 minute ride. Obviously, a faster ride time would increase the attractiveness of the system. 8 March 3.2003 • Snowmass Town Center Aerial People Moser System Project Technical Review SE GROUP ..� Capacities of the different gondola systems can vary from 300 to 1,000 persons per hour. Capacity is a function of cabin capacity,number of cabins and line speed. Using the LSC Design Volume discussed earlier, a capacity of 300 persons per hour, peak PM hour is required. Based on this capacity and relative cost, a pulse gondola or a fixed grip gondola system would be the most appropriate technology. The ability of the pulse system to stop for loading and unloading, and a possibly higher line speed make this system more attractive than a fixed grip gondola. The alignment of the system from Center to Mall, with loading and unloading at Base Village, will affect system selection. Because this load and unload area is not equal ... distances between upper and lower terminals of the Snowmass Center system, a single pulse system from Center to Mall is precluded. The alignment is nearly horizontal from Center to Village,while the land between the project dips towards Brush Creek from either side. Some additional power and towers may be required to hold the line down over the creek crossing. The Primary drive power will be electric motors. Auxiliary drives will be diesel. Primary drive power is between 100 and 300 horsepower, depending on final capacity and line speed selected. The top and bottom terminal of a pulse gondola system varies whether the system is fixed grip or detachable technology. Typically, the drive terminals are approximately 55 feet long and 25 to 30 feet wide for a fixed grip system. The return terminal of a fixed grip system is one-third to one-half the size of the drive terminal. A fixed grip continuously circulating gondola of similar capacity can be accommodated in a similar sized terminal. A detachable grip gondola system will require terminals of 70 to 100 feet in length and 40 feet in width. If detachable grip system cabins are to be stored in the terminals, additional space may be required. Fixed grip cabins are stored on the line; space is available for storage within the corridor allocation. Additional technical parameters of gondola systems are presented below: Alignment Ropeways normally do not vary (turn) in horizontal alignment without additional engineering and cost. Examples do exist of horizontal turns and could be part of alignment considerations in this project. If loading and unloading is desired at a -• turn location, terminals will be required. This can nearly double the price of the drive systems. If the turn angle is too sharp, and rope considerations do not allow for deflection, terminals may also be required with similar cost implications. Examples of ranges of horizontal turns can be from 3 degrees (The Canyons cabriolet)to 33 degrees (Skyrail, Cairns, Australia). .moo, 9 March 18,2003 Snowmass Town Center ftie Aerial People Mover System Project Technical Review SE GROUP Electrical Lines .r Passenger ropeway systems may cross overhead electrical power distribution line ,..,� routes, subject to state and federal regulations and the requirements of the power supplier. In most cases, the ropeway system passes below the power lines so that evacuation can be accomplished from the ropeway and to minimize the possibility of objects falling on power lines. Road Crossings Roads may be crossed by aerial passenger ropeway systems, subject to state and federal regulations. Clearances vary by jurisdiction; a typical clearance is 19 feet below the lowest point of the cabin on the rope. Special care needs to be taken at terminal locations to ensure that road crossing heights can be achieved as cabins enter and exit the terminals; some setback from roadways is required to meet crossing heights. Wind Considerations Aerial systems are capable of operations in relatively windy conditions. This ability is affected by the orientation of the alignment to the wind direction. ,,. Normally, alignments roughly parallel to wind direction are the most appropriate for cabin systems. The weight of the cabin and line equipment, as well as the location and number of towers also affects the ability to operate in windy conditions. Rain and Fog Considerations Ropeway systems are capable of operating in fog and rain conditions. Operational requirements vary, but generally operators must be able to see load and unload areas. Icing conditions will shut aerial systems down. Electrical Storm Considerations All systems are designed to accommodate the possibility of electrical storms. Regulations vary but, in general, passenger operations are suspended when lightning is reported or visible within 5 to 10 miles. Damage to ropeway systems can occur if the system is struck by lightning. Night Operation Considerations Each of the technology systems has examples of night operations. Cabins can be lit with battery power or remain dark. Load and unload stations must be lit. Special preparations need to be made if night evacuation of the system is required. ..� Evacuation Considerations Systems may need to be evacuated due to equipment failure or weather conditions. State and federal regulations require on-duty personnel sufficient to accomplish an evacuation and require regular training. Ropeway alignments need to consider the possibility of vegetation removal to allow for evacuation access possibilities. Evacuations from systems over buildings are more difficult and generally are avoided. !0 March 18.2003 a.r Snowmass Town Center Aerial People,4Mover System Project Technical Review SE GROUP Personnel Considerations Each system will be required to have at least 1 operator at the top and bottom .,., terminal. Other requirements will be for on-duty, lift electricians and lift mechanic(s)and an adequate number of trained personnel available for evacuation requirements. User Requirements ,�. Special requirements of potential system passengers will affect the ability of a ropeway system to be used in a particular application. All of the cabin systems can be designed to meet the anticipated user requirements. American with Disabilities Act(ADA)Considerations Passenger tramways have the ability to accommodate user groups with special needs and meet the requirements of the ADA. Existing gondolas and trams on public lands currently operate well providing these services. The size of the cabin will need to consider the ability of a wheel chair, for example, to load into and out of a cabin. Doors must open adequately and floor heights must allow for roll on and off. The accessibility of the terminal also must comply with regulations. Passenger tramways that stop in terminals are easier to develop accommodations for special needs. Many passenger ropeway operations have barrier free interpretive trails as part of their operations. w Other Parameters Because of the recreational nature of the project area, it is very likely that passengers will have recreational items, family items and possibly domestic animals with them. The selection of a ropeway system needs to consider these items. Backpacks and picnic items are not a problem for cabin ropeway systems; however, actual capacity of a system will vary by the size and number of items. Further, the ability of a passenger to pick up the item and load and unload the item from the cabin must be considered. Strollers, walkers, wheel chairs all can be accommodated in the appropriate cabin size. While some installations are considering outside carriage of bicycles, additional design work needs to take place in order to minimize �.. damage to cabin paint and structure. All cabin types can accommodate dogs. Cabriolet installations may not be appropriate, due to their somewhat open nature. For this study area, weather protection will be required. Windows should be operable, but minimize the opportunity for throwing items. Systems in other areas have considered heating in cabins. However, safety concerns make heating problematic for gondolas. Lighting and music are possible. v •• 11 March 18.2003 ..r Snowmass Town Center Aerial People:Wooer System Project Technical Review 'l4 .7")7 SE GROUP Environmental Considerations Each type of ropeway system has the ability to minimize environmental disturbance. Gondola towers can be placed carefully to miss wetlands, riparian zones or areas of special concern for plant life or animals. The majority of the physical impact occurs at terminal locations. ..r Drive systems can be located at top or bottom terminals to minimize the affects of drive and terminal operation noise. Noise along the route, away from terminals, is minimal with sound occurring as cabins pass over towers. We, Proposed System Technical Data ... Based upon the technical,user and environmental considerations, and the capacity requirements of the system, and in consultation with lift suppliers,SE GROUP recommends the following people mover, passenger ropeway, system. The system would consist of a continuously circulating,pulse gondola with a total of 8 cabins to meet initial demand. Four groups of 2 cabins, 6 persons in each cabin,would be equally spaced on the line. Riders would be seated. It would be possible to design seating so that it could be raised for recreational equipment and packages. Line speed would be 1000 feet per minute between stations and 50 feet per minute within stations. Ride time would be 2.75 minutes between top and bottom stations. The initial capacity would be 375 persons per hour. One additional cabin could be added to each group of 2 cabins (total of 4 cabins)to achieve a capacity up to 500 per hour. The drive terminal would be located at Snowmass Center with the return terminal at Base Village. The system would circulate clockwise. Primary power is 150 HP. Seven towers are proposed. A variance for clearance to the proposed Base Village Child Care Building may be required. • 4114 "towR� I .�:' Y 4 Te... x} iT Figure 6.Drive Terminal Example— Actual terminal is proposed within a covered building Figure 7.Return Terminal-Example 12 March 3,2003 Snowrnass Town Center :feria!People Mover System Project Technical Review .r` r SE GROUP The size of the drive and return station, exclusive of covering buildings is: Station Length (feet) Station Width (feet) Drive Station—Snowmass Center 53 28 Return Station—Base Village 22.5 16.5 Because the system is fixed grip, cabins will be stored on the line, 2 groups of cabins will be inside of station enclosures. These cabins would be rotated with remaining group of cabins for covered storage on alternating nights. Cabins can be maintained on the line or removed for maintenance. Access to the terminal by flat bed truck will be needed. Maintenance areas for cabins can be a 20 by 30 foot building(if not all `" cabins are removed and stored inside at once)with fixed rail system for suspending the cabins. y.. 13 March 18.2003 Snowmass Town Center ffirfermi People Mover System Project Capital and Annual Operating Cost Si': Gltoti °- OPINION OF CAPITAL AND ANNUAL OPERATING COST 1.

ANNUAL OPERATIONAL EXPENSES )-) ds to-i-^- 4--e3 r ; Annual operating expenses were calculated based on three different options for operating hours, and two operating scenarios: Plan A, an operational/maintenance contract with Aspen Ski Corporation; and Plan B, a stand alone operation with no connection to Aspen Ski Corporation. A lift of this complexity would require not only lift operators, but the availability of a lift mechanic and lift electrician during all hours of operation. A stand alone operation would likely require the electrician and mechanic to operate the lift, increasing the labor costs of operation. A contract for operations with Aspen Ski Corporation would allow for lower cost lift operators, with the electrician and mechanic available on an as need basis from the existing lift operation on Snowmass Mountain. All budgets are based on a year-round 9..pera_:.tIng season with one month off for routine maintenance.
