Squaw Valley is a resort located in Lake Tahoe and its president, and CEO is a popular skydiver, Andy Wirth. Since his appointment to this important position in the resort, Andy has strived to ensure that the place is the best for tourists coming from all parts of the world. He has worked extremely hard to ensure that the climate is the area is favorable for the tourists visiting the destination, and he has also tried to develop the area for the communities residing there. During his tenure as the CEO, residential and other properties have been built, and he still continues to develop the area. Road maintenance and other services have been his priority too.
Before becoming the CEO of Squaw Valley, Andy Wirth was involved in a serious accident when playing. The skydiver expert was forced to stay in the hospital and endure several surgeries just to recover his right arm, and fortunately, he managed to recover. After being discharged, he started a foundation to collect funds and support wounded players get back to their playing activities.
During his tenure as the CEO of the resort, Andy has experienced some difficulties. The journey has not been as smooth as he always wanted and expected. The last four years have been the worst to be precise. The whole of Lake Tahoe area did not receive the rains as usual, and this ended in a bad drought. The resorts operating in the region were affected, not forgetting the tiny businesses depending on the resorts for survival.
Apart from the serious drought in the area, Andy Wirth has had to endure a serious political challenge in the region. Some individuals in the area were asking for the incorporation of Olympic Valley, something that Squaw Valley Holdings was against. These two factors affected the community, and the businesses were almost collapsing.
Things have been good of late, and fortunately, Lake Tahoe community and the surrounding resorts can finally enjoy some peace of mind. Everything seems to be falling in place, and hopefully, the crisis will come to an end before everyone knows it. The rains come earlier than usual, and Mother Nature was generous to produce more than the expected rains. The rains put an end to the drought, something that could not have been resolved by humanity.
The storms come together with a lot of cold temperatures, and thanks to these two factors, the investors in the area had an opportunity to open their businesses earlier than usual. Although this has never happened in the last decade, the resorts will make a lot of money. The incorporation of Olympic Valley did not succeed, bringing an end to the problems Andy has been experiencing. Everything is now back to its original form.
