Squaw Alpine Boss Interested in turning page on the divisive fight

The communities located at the north shore of Lake Tahoe have not had it smooth in the past years after an epic drought hit during the winter resorts and greatly affected the small businesses which most of the residents depended on.
The communities living at the north also had to face the political change which came in form of an incorporation battle over the home to Squaw Valley Resort, the most iconic winter sports terrain in North America and the Olympic Valley in addition to the natural challenge they were already being subjected to.
However, according to the Squaw Valley Ski Holdings president and CEO Mr. Andy Wirth, soon there could be relief. Wirth also revealed that the communities have been through some very tough four years.
The communities were provided with a mother nature which came in the form of early season storms accompanied with cold temperatures which helped the Tahoe area resorts and the Squaw Valley resorts to open much earlier than it has been for the past years.
The individuals who had supported the incorporation effort which was considered by Andy Wirth as a threat especially to the civic climate and the business instead provided political relief after they officially withdrew from their struggle in having Olympic Valley incorporated.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars were used by the Squaw Valle Ski Holdings as they tried to oppose the efforts of incorporation because according to Wirth, the move could have resulted in higher tax to the residents, the businesses and the a decrease to the level of services such as snow plowing and road maintenance which most people depended on. Andy Wirth also revealed that it could have easily isolated the Olympic Valley from the communities at the north shore.
Andy Wirth also claimed that it was a true recipe for disaster which was a long threat to business operation. The article was published through the Reno-Gazette Journal.
