Andy Wirth, Newly Elected Reno-Tahoe Chairman
A Man, his Legacy, and his New Position
Andy Wirth is a man who’s had a very interesting and successful life. Wirth is most famous for being the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings who has worked hard to ensure his ski resort is one of the absolute finest tour destinations in the world however he’s had other accomplishments under his belt. In addition to his role as a CEO, Wirth is also a contributor to the community and environmental service organizations within the Lake Tahoe area to improve the area for everyone. Wirth has also co-founded an Ironman team called “Wounded Warrior Support” to raise money for the Navy SEAL Foundation as well as honor the men of the Navy SEALs. Wirth did this sometime after a near-fatal skydiving accident and it perhaps highlights his character. And now, he’s found himself a new position.
“I am honored to serve in this role for the Regional Air Service Corporation. I believe that the landscape of, and future for our region, including the greater Reno-Sparks area and all of Lake Tahoe, is replete with opportunity. Air service into our region is and will continue to be one of the central elements of our growing and thriving economy,” said Wirth.
Back in January Wirth had been elected to serve as the Chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Regional Air Service Corporation (RASC). Wirth’s position was decided upon due to his major involvement with the development of airports and air services ranging from Colorado to Quebec for major resorts and communities. Wirth wasn’t the only new addition to the RASC ranks as Kimberlee Tolkien and Andy Chapman were voted to become the RASC’s new Vice Chair/Secretary and Treasurer respectively.
About Squaw Valley
Discovered by Alex Cushing in 1946 during a ski trip with his friends, the ski resort first officially opened on November 24, 1949. What started off as a small resort by Cushing has evolved into one of the world’s finest ski resorts. So fine in fact that Olympic skiers are among the regulars of the resort.
