Andy Wirth – CEO and owner of popular Squaw Valley Resort

Andy Wirth is a philanthropist and businessman who is the CEO and owner of Squaw Valley Resort. It’s located in the beautiful Olympic Valley Mountains where many people visit to enjoy the breath taking views and the beauty from every angle. The resort is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, especially during the winter months. Many skier’s take advantage of the resort and utilize it to its fullest, visiting every day and living their dream. Wirth has worked hard to ensure that maintenance on the resort continues to approve the overall experience along with the up-keep necessary to ensure the success of the resort. Wirth’s latest project has included a gondola that will connect the two resorts together. Construction has started on the project and is almost finished. The exciting part about the gondola is that it will allow visitors to travel from on end of the resort to the end quite quickly and successfully, allowing them to fully enjoy both resorts. Before, there was no way to get from one resort to other. It was just one or the other that you had to pick to use. Now you can use both of them, and it’s a luxury most people will not want to miss out on.

Andy Wirth grew up in Germany, and moved to the United States when he graduated from high school. He moved to Colorado where he attended Colorado State University and fell in love with the mountainous views of the state. After graduating from college, he moved to Steamboat, Colorado, where he went to work for a result. He worked his way up the ladder and became quite successful. That’s when he decided he was going to purchase the resort and is now the proud owner and CEO.

Wirth is an outdoor enthusiast himself, and grew up around family members that enjoyed the same things he still does today. He has a newfound outlook on life after a near fatal sky diving experience that landed him in the hospital for months. He started the “Wounded Warrior Support” organization that helps supports Navy Seals once they return home with their family.
