The deliberating Incorporate Olympic Valley battle finally reached its end. Andy Wirth who has invested heavily into deterring efforts of an incorporation can now focus on other community development projects. In addition, he was particularly circumspect in silencing incorporation backers who attempted to demerit his success with questionable remarks. The cited Reno-Gazette Journal reads that; Olympic Valley Incorporation crusaders strongly believes Andy Wirth’s Squaw Valley Ski Holdings opposed the proposal for other personal motives besides environmental and economic responsibilities. Certainly, Wirth stands to gain from developing Lake Tahoe communities, but his plans won’t solely benefit him or his company.
The recent disasters have significantly impacted the once-booming resort landscape. Small businesses and winter resort bungalows have equally suffered substantial losses. Wirth isn’t resting until he’s revived these communities. As Squaw Valley Ski Holdings chief executive and president, Wirth plan on expanding real estate to propel economic statistics. The dissolution of the time-consuming political challenge has freed up Wirth to mastermind meaningful community innovations. With an incorporation, Worth fears spontaneous tax increases for locals and small resort businesses. Today, Olympic Valley resources fuel the entire north shore circle of communities. Without its support, these communities are likely to face economic struggles beyond imagination. Wirth also addressed rumors about a gondola which has been a trending news lately. He’s confirmed that such a project exist, with plans to link iconic resort communities, Alpine Meadows, and Squaw Valley.
While Wirth is bringing this vision to fruition, he admits, that Wayne Poulsen, Squaw Valley’s original founder conceived this idea decades ago. Furthermore, skiers who have sampled both verticals have long awaited this alliance. The online media conglomerate, Powder, further merits the story with Andy Wirth views from a well-documented interview. Interestingly, Wirth isn’t singularly passionate about community development and real estate. Having cheated death, he’s motivated to helping society by endorsing meaningful charities through Crowdrise. A survivor of a life-altering ski accident which left him hopeless some years ago actually became his inspiration to forming the “Ironman Team.” Wirth recovered within record time, which involved intense training and therapy courtesy of the rigorous Ironman triathlon. Contributions received through the Crowdrise campaign goes to the NSF (Navy Seal Foundation).
The group Wirth arranged functions to aid the NAVSPECWARCOM (Naval Special Warfare Community). Additionally, these heroes extend their service to the families of the community. Since the accident in 2013, Wirth, who has somewhat regained mobility, still face physical limitations. With regards to the ongoing Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley restoration effort, Wirth released a CBS documentary to record every aspect of the endeavor. It’s been 3yrs since the RSCVA (Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitor’s Authority) appointed Wirth as chairman, Sierra Sun reported. His presence among the RAAB (Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board) members has influenced meaningful changes to the environmental landscape. In fact, he spearheaded numerous real estate development, including upgrades to gaming, economic environments, air service and the ski resort landscape.
