For most of the visitors who travel to the famed Squaw Valley Resort in Tahoe, Andy Wirth is a friendly individual who likes to share his life stories and welcome guests to the area. However, those who have developed a friendship with the CEO of Squaw Valley Holdings, they know that Andy is not your typical CEO. In fact, he is a household name in the Valley because he has devoted his life to improve the local community.
Recently, Andy Wirth made headlines as he was able to halt efforts from a private group that wanted to incorporate the iconic Squaw Valley Resort. By spending a lot of his own capital, he was able to convince the legislatures that any such effort to incorporate the town will be a death-sentence for local businesses. Similarly, Andy Wirth is actively involved in spreading his influence in the neighboring Lake Tahoe communities because he believes that his efforts to develop Squaw Valley should not be restricted only to the town. In fact, every one around Lake Tahoe and Reno area should benefit form the benefits that resource sharing can bring.
In an effort to develop the area, he has also recently undertaken a massive construction project, which will connect the two world class resorts, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadow through a Gondola ride. In the near future, Andy has further plans to develop an extensive roadwork that will reduce the traffic congestion in the area. Perhaps, his dedication to the community is one of the primary reasons, Andy Wirth is selected as the Chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Regional Air Service. The air service serves as the most important link for the Tahoe Lake communities and Reno area to connect with the outside world.
As thousands of visitors continue to enjoy one of the world’s most pristine ski environments, Andy Wirth seems a perfect choice for the post as he has been instrumental in developing various airports and air services from Ski resorts of Colorado to Quebec. In fact, he recently played a central role in bringing Jet Blue services to the area from JFK. Hopefully, his appointment will provide extremely beneficial for future developments in the area.
