Andy Wirth Sets Sights on New Venture

Squaw Valley Ski has long been a stalwart part of the Reno – Tahoe region. The world class ski resort has long been a destination for travelers from all over the world. The CEO of Squaw Valley, Andy Wirth, is now doing some pretty big things for the region. Andy Wirth was recently appointed to the Reno Airport Authority Board and he will bring a slate of experience along the way. Wirth will take his seat alongside three other appointments: Lisa Gianoli, Jessica Sferrazza, and Jenifer Rose.

Andy Wirth was quick to make a statement of excitement regarding his appointment to the board by saying, “We are adding very experienced and talented people who are dedicated to enhancing travel to and from the region.”. Wirth went on to espouse his confidence and faith in the rest of the new additions. Of course, Wirth himself will be more than appreciated for what he brings to the table being that he has extensive experience with international resort management. He has worked hand in hand developing travel between Utah, Canada, and Colorado.

If the name Andy Wirth is slightly ringing a bell it might be because of his impressive and, to put it lightly, life changing past. Wirth made headlines everywhere when he experienced a nearly fatal accident while skydiving in California. Wirth is a thrill seeking person who took a quick liking to skydiving, subsequently turning it into a hobby he pursued every weekend. ON a fairly traditional jump he was blown off course and forced to put down in a vineyard. Wirth ended up clipping a power line where his arm was abruptly ripped off at the shoulder. Wirth was able to keep cool while he waited for help to arrive, employing survival tactics to avoid going into shock. Wirth would end up being bedridden in a hospital for a few months.

Now Wirth is back at it and ready to make a difference by giving back to the region that has done so much for him. Squaw Valley Ski’s CEO will serve as an integral part of the Airport Authority Board.
