July 18, 2013
OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. — The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority recently announced the addition of three new board members and a new chairman. Among new board members is Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, who was appointed to represent the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority.
According to a Squaw press release, Wirth is looking forward to serving as a liaison between Lake Tahoe and the Reno-Sparks region.
Wirth’s appointment comes during a time of unprecedented investment among Lake Tahoe ski resorts as the region seeks to attract more destination visitors.
Last winter, resorts invested more than $100 million in ongoing capital improvements, investing in new chairlifts, mid-mountain lodges, base area renovations and additional guest amenities.
“I will be working very diligently to help bring in more nonstop flights from key markets, an effort which supports the goals of our company and which, more importantly, benefits all of the citizens and businesses in the region,” Wirth said in a statement.
Airport trustees are appointed by the city of Reno, city of Sparks, Washoe County and the RSCVA.
