Andy Wirth has over 25 years of experience with this industry and has the mission of making his ski resort one of the top places to visit in the world. Within the past six years of being the leader of this resort, Andy Wirth has been able to help this resort earn the position in the top 20 percent of ski resorts in the United States.

As a businessman, Andy Wirth earned this ski resort from the Cushing family. The Cushing family was the original owner of this resort and has held this resort within the family for the past 70 years.

Though this family was a family owned business, it became a faltering business after this resort hosted the Olympians during the 1960 Winter Olympics.

Andy Wirth was entrusted with the family business due to his excellent business background as well as his love of nature. Nancy Cushing, the most recent owner, entrusted Mr. Wirth to help regrow the business in order to make it one of the most sought after ski resorts in the country if not the world.

Andy Wirth has since then not only put in hard work, but has also poured over $70 million into renovating this ski resort.  Read more: How Will the Drought Affect California Ski Resorts?
