Wirth’s views on the Gondola project
The powder.com interviewed Andy Wirth last year regarding his company’s new Gondola project. Both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are renowned as the leading ski resorts in Lake Tahoe region. They were merged when KSL Capital Partners, which owns Squaw Valley, bought Alpine Meadows in 2011. The gondola was scheduled to join the two resorts that lie on two mountains that are adjacent to each other. Wirth said that the connection between Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley would bring joy to both local and visiting snowboarders and skiers.
