Squaw Valley is synonymous with great skiing, so it doesn’t disappoint thousands of skiers every year, even though the drought on the West Coast has impacted the amount of snow that has fallen over the last three years. People come from all over the world to ski and relax in the mountain resort.
The amount of people that come to the Lake Tahoe area in spring, summer, winter, and fall continues to challenge the residents. Traffic congestion is over the top and the short supply of rooms that are available makes getting a reservation a difficult task. But the CEO of Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, Andy Wirth is leading the charge to change the traffic pattern and to add more rooms and new entertainment to the area.
According to Crowdrise, Andy Wirth is a passionate, well-rounded executive that is dedicated to making the Lake Tahoe area a better place to visit. Andy Wirth spends 20 years in Colorado at the Steamboat Springs Ski Resort, and before that he was a park ranger, so he is very familiar with what it takes to make cold weather sports more appealing.
There is a 96-acre expansion plan in the works at the Olympic Village at Squaw Valley, and Andy Wirth said the 25-year project may cost $1 billion when it is completed. Wirth also said the project is an important piece in the success of Squaw Valley in the future.
The expansion plan is in the final approval phase, so construction should begin in 2017. More rooms are needed, so more time shares and condos will be added to keep Squaw Valley competitive with ski resorts around the world.
The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board recently voted, and the members elected Andy Wirth Chairman of the Board. Wirth is in the process of bringing more airline service into the Reno-Tahoe Airport from cities on the East Coast and Midwest
