Lake Tahoe community has had a rough time for the past several years. The area has several resorts visited by tourists coming from all parts of the world. There are some small businesses opened to serve these resorts, and they mostly depend on these resorts for their survival always. One of the most visited resorts in this area is Squaw Valley, and the CEO in this resort is known as Andy Wirth.
For several years now, Andy Wirth and the whole community have had to endure the lack of rains. This drought affected the performance of the resorts, and to make matters worse, the small businesses depending on them had to close because they could not survive without the tourists. Most of the resorts had to close down too, and this led to the loss of important services the community receives from them.
The drought was not the only trouble facing this community. There was a lot of political tension in the area, giving the residents sleepless nights. Everybody needs a peaceful and tension free environment, but this was not possible for the community. Some individuals were advocating for the incorporation of Olympic Valley. This was also a big problem to the resorts too. Andy Wirth had to spend a lot of money just to ensure that these individuals did not succeed in their plans. According to Andy Wirth, the incorporation would result in very high taxes to the communities and the small businesses would not be able to bear it. The services offered to the community like road construction, and maintenance would also not be offered to the community.
This has however turned around in the New Year. The whole Tahoe area is celebrating the New Year in style. The area was lucky to get enough rain earlier than the expected time. The resorts opened than their normal time, forcing the small businesses also to open. According to Andy, this has been one of the toughest years, but he believes that things will change for the better in the New Year. The individuals who wanted Olympic Valley to be incorporated were defeated, and Andy Wirth managed to win the battle.
Andy Wirth is a popular skydiver. He has been playing this game for years, but he had a serious accident in the year 2013 that changed his life and career. He as lucky to survive, and after several months, he got healed. His recovery was however not easy. He started a charitable organization to help other players who survive these accidents to get back on their feet.
