Phased Lift Replacement Program

1. The resort will have control of the time that
the work phases begin if dictated by cash flow.
2. With the contractual commitment, Skytrac can

by control of the resort, Skytrac will allow for cost increases only to match
the production price index, usually within 2-3% maximum.
3. Parts and components are sourced and
fabricated in Salt Lake City, Utah.
