The Squaw Valley Resort has had a rough couple of years from experiencing a drought to the political incorporation. Andy Wirth, who is the CEO of the Squaw Valley Resort has endured the issues and tried to resolve them the best that he can. Thanks to Mother Nature, and early winter storm has swept through the country and provided much needed moisture for the area. This has allowed skier’s to enjoy the ski resort at an earlier date, which has helped the Squaw Valley Resort get an early start for the season. Wirth has thankfully also experienced some relief from the political incorporation that was trying to increase taxes on the residents and the community in the surrounding areas. There has unfortunately been some statements and events that have happened that Wirth is hoping they can move past. His goal is to look forward to the future and work together to better the community and the surrounding areas.
Wirth has been in the historic parks and resort industry for over twenty five years and has a lot of experience in the industry. He was actually born in Germany and decided to attend Colorado State University. He graduated from Colorado State University and moved to Steamboat, Colorado, where he served as the executive marketing manager for the Steamboat Resort. He worked there for a number of years before he decided to take over the Squaw Valley Resort, which is a ski resort located in the Olympic Valley that is known or it’s scenic, beautiful 360 views. In 2010 he became the CEO of the Squaw Valley Resort and continues to work on the experience and beauty of the winter activities resort. His latest project involves the structure of a gondola, which will connect the two sister resorts together. This gondola will make it more convenient for the fellow skier’s to connect from one ski resort to the other. They will soon be able to freely, and easily enjoy each resort by utilizing the new gondola, which the building process is set to take place soon.
Wirth also spends much of his time involved in environmental groups and works on resolving environmental and community issues. He takes part in many groups that help make the environment a better place to live for everybody. He also works with the youth on different environmental issues. By teaching them to respect the environment at a young age, he feels they will grow up knowing the facts.
