Andy Wirth Leads Battle To Fight The Olympic Valley Incorporation

March 24, 2016 - Author: steph

According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, a big battle between Squaw Valley Ski Holdings LLC and the residents of the Olympic Valley area reached a head recently, as the residents who have been pushing for the incorporation of the Olympic Valley, have now withdrawn their petition. Squaw Valley Ski Holdings owns resorts in that area and the Placer County Board of Supervisors, a governing body from the Sacramento area, oversees the land’s activities and some locals wished to have it become local. The effort to incorporate the Olympic Valley got struck down by the Local Agency Formation Commission who said it wasn’t sustainable for the locals to hold.

Wirth is also breathing a sigh of relief to what he saw as a fiscally irresponsible move by those leading the incorporation effort, and has stated it would’ve lead to higher taxes and higher costs of living and local services. But thanks to both the incorporation battle ending as well as good ski weather coming in, the company resorts have been able to open. This after the last few years of the ongoing battle.

Andy Wirth, as seen on his About.me page has been the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings LLC now since 2010. He’s been a longtime lover of skiing and testing the slopes and had a near fatal accident while sky diving at one time. It was his recuperation that eventually inspired him to start a foundation helping Navy SEAL individuals who were also going through difficult recuperation, called Wounded Warrior Project. The Foundation has so far raised over $14,000 in support according to Crowdrise, and many have expressed their gratitude to Wirth for starting the foundation.

Through the work Wirth has done, the Olympic Valley’s ski resorts have become one of the top rated skiing places in the world. He has also done work with local environmental and social causes to help make the Lake Tahoe area a better place to live. The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board of Trustees has even awarded him the Chairman’s Outstanding Service Award according to his Wikipedia page.
