Andy Wirth is the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings. The Squaw Valley Ski Holdings came to be after Alpine Meadows was acquired by KSL Capital Partners who were the owners of Squaw Valley. The two ski resorts are located close to each other but are separated by some land between them.
Despite them being under the same owner, one still has to drive to get from one resort to the other. The customers use one ticket to go to both resorts. Andy is on a mission to connect the two with a gondola lift. Talks between him and the owner of the land between the resorts are underway.
