Many people love being in the outdoors. Quickly being able to move across snow in a beautiful setting is a passion that the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Chief Operating Officer knows that he shares with others. Like so many people before him, he has come to world of the outdoors with help from many family members. At at early age, the outdoors was a place where he felt at home. This is now more true that ever before. He is one person who is dedicated to sharing his love of the world of snow, ice and beautiful mountains as much as he can with others. His aim is to make the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows one area where skiers can get out on the slopes really easily.
Andy Wirth comes his job with an awareness of many things. He that this area is one where people have gone skiing for decades. He also knows that many visitors have seen both Squaw Valley and the Alpine Meadows mountains and dreamed of connecting the two spaces. With this understanding, he is forging full speed ahead with a dream that has enraptured visitors for a long time. His plans right now for the area include the creation of a very special transport system that will make life easier for both visitors and those who live and work in the area as well.
A New Gondola
The new gondola system comes straight from the imagination and determination of Wirth. He sees the area and sees a complete vision that he can put in place. The gondola will allow any visitor a quick, three part system that brings them across both mountains and means that the visitor need not drive along heavily trafficked roads just to get around the region. The system brings a vision that Wirth knows has long been dreamed about by people in the area who came here before he did. As part of his leadership, he wants to help see that vision come to life and finally realize a dream of easy mountain to mountain transport that is totally modern.
