Andy Wirth is the CEO of Squaw Valley, a resort that is found at Lake Tahoe. Apart from being a hard working leader in this company, Andy is also a popular skydiver. He was appointed into this position several years ago, and since then, he was worked hard to make the place a good site for tourist attraction in the world. He has been working towards developing the area all, though.
For some years now, the CEO has had some problems. The resort is no longer working as usual due to some problems experienced for some time. First of all, the area did not get any rains for several seasons, and this resulted in a serious drought. Rains play a very important role in the Tahoe business, and this means that things have not been operating as normal. There are businesses that belong to people living in the communities close to the resort. These businesses depend on the resorts for their survival, and they have been affected too.
Apart from the drought, Andy Wirth had to deal political issues. The area that hosts several resorts, known as Olympic Valley was to be incorporated, and this was causing sleepless nights for Andy. His company had to spend a lot of money trying to battle the incorporation. If the incorporation of Olympic Valley was successful, the residents of the area would have to pay higher taxes. Services offered to the community would be impossible, and if they had to happen, they would be fewer than expected.
The New Year has started with some good news for Squaw Valley and the whole of Lake Tahoe community. The community is currently enjoying good rains, thanks to Mother Nature. Early storms were experienced, and they were accompanied by cold temperatures. This climate is favorable for the businesses, and this made them open before their normal time. This had never been experienced in the past.
Early storms are not the only thing the community is enjoying. The political tension that was ongoing due to the incorporation of Olympic Valley is no longer there. The people backing this idea were not successful, and the people can now settle in their businesses without worrying about paying extremely high taxes.
Andy Wirth is a popular skydiver. In October 2013, the player was involved in a skydiving accident that almost took his life. He landed on a vine, and this made him injure his arm serious. He lost a lot of blood in the accident, but he was rescued in time. After several surgeries, him arm was reattached, and after a lot of therapy, he was cured. He started an organization to help accident survivors to get their lives back.
