Gondola To Connect Squaw Valley To Alpine Meadows


For as long as there has been fresh powder in North Tahoe there has been two very distinct but different ski courses. This is about to change as the Owners of Squaw Valley have purchased Alpine Meadows.

Recent revelations into the particulars of this sale expose the plans to join the two resorts. A gondola that would join the two mountains and scale the ridge between them are planned. There are a few bumps in the plan though. The gondola would run through Forest Service lands.

At present plans for the gondola have been submitted for review. The entire region will greatly benefit from the joining of the two resorts. Local skiers and snowboarders are eagerly waiting the acceptance of the plans. This is something that the local residents feel that businesses and visitor will benefit from.

Andrew Wirth is presently the Chief Executive Officer of Squaw Valley Ski holdings and has been very instrumental in moving both the sale and the gondola plans forward. He has more than 25 years experience in the mountain resort and hotel industry. He also attended Colorado State University and Edinburgh University.

Wirth also holds many different professional experiences which make him the ideal individual to not only move the ski resort plan forward, but also to maximize the experience it will bring for visitors and guests.

Serving the community is something the free spirited Wirth is no stranger to . He has received numerous community service and professional awards during the span of his career. Among some of these awards include; Chairman’s Outstanding Service Award, Steamboat Springs Business Leader of the Year, and Citizen of the Year by Disabled Sports USA.

He is also a sought after public having spoken at a number of commencement services including his alma mater. Andrew Wirth s also a bit of a daredevil. This wild side brought about a sky diving accident where he experienced a severed arm that had to be reattached.

The unique experiences and education of Andrew Wirth makes him the ideal candidate to lead Squaw Valley Holdings to the fruition of the joint ski areas.
