It a known fact that the terrain along the valley makes it hard to move around. Developers also have the challenge of creating minimal disturbance to the ground when constructing roads. Andy Wirth has been dedicated to providing sustainable solutions for such challenges. In 2011, Squaw Valley Resorts acquired the neighboring Alpine Meadows and integrated into one corporate entity.
This acquisition has made it possible to construct a game-changing gondola that would facilitate base to base movements between the ski resorts as published on Powder Magazine. The new connection brings convenience and speed to skiers and snowboarders, therefore, more fun and business. Andy Wirth felt that the gondola was always going to be the best and most sustainable solution for the local infrastructure.
