Andy Wirth is the president of Squaw Valley Resort, which recently merged with Alpine Meadows. The resort boasts one of the most magnificent ski areas in the world. The steep slopes, winding trails and one of the longest seasons in the U.S. is what makes the resort great. Wirth is credited with pulling the resort out of the cellar and making it one of the best in the world.
