Andy Wirth is a professional businessman and the CEO of the Squaw Valley Ski Holdings who has worked very hard to build the beautiful resort into what it is today. The Squaw Valley Resort is nestled in the beautiful Olympic Valley with its hard to beat views and popular winter activities. Many people from all over the world travel to the area to take part in the wonderful resort and the activities it has to offer. Andy Wirth has spent much of his life in the historical parks and outdoor industry and has continued to combine efforts of production placed towards the famous resort.
Wirth was born and raised in Germany with a history of the outdoor industry braised in his family roots. He traveled to the Colorado State University to pursue his education. After graduating with his degree, he moved to Steamboat, Colorado, where he began his career in the industry. He worked there for many years before making the transition as the CEO of Squaw Valley Resort. Wirth is also a major provider and contributor to environment activities and foundations along with community service organizations. His efforts are focused in the Lake Tahoe area where he strives to improve the environment in general for people and their communities. Wirth was involved in a near fatal skydiving accident that forever changed his life for the better. He started an organization called the “Wounded Warrior Support” in efforts to help raise money for the Navy SEALS.
Wirth’s latest project at the Squaw Valley Resort involves a gondola that will connect the Squaw Valley Resort to its sister resort in the area. More outdoor enthusiasts will find that the convenience offered via the gondola will prove to be a hug asset to the community as they travel throughout the areas enjoying both resorts. It’s something that has been talked about for quite some time, and Wirth is pleased to make the announcement that actions are set in place and construction has started. Many are excited about the opportunity that it allows, and will now have the ability to enjoy both resorts and really enhance their experience of the beauty and the activities.
