Andy Wirth has always championed for the development of Squaw Valley through tourism. That is why he was quick to propose a construction of a gondola between Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows to connect the two mountains and enable tourists to have seamless entertainment in the area. His efforts bore fruits when the two valleys announced the construction of the gondola last year.
The gondola will operate in three parts. One will begin from the base of Squaw Valley and run to the top. The other will run between the rides of the two mountains. The third will run down from Alpine Meadows to Squaw Valley. The construction of the gondola is a gift to skiers from Tahoe and abroad who were dreaming of a connection between the two mountains for decades. The announcement came after a long period of discussions and consultations between the CEOs and stakeholders of Ski Holdings Limited and Alpine Meadows. The new development will see an increase in the number of tourists visiting the place in future.
