His most important charitable work may be his efforts to help the families of special forces soldiers in the military and their family. He helps raise money for them through his ironman team “Wounded Warrior Support”. The organization mainly raises money for Navy SEALs and their families. He was inspired to start the organization after he nearly died in a skydiving accident.
His company’s next step towards becoming a worldwide destination for skiers is the expansion that they are planning. This expansion has been met with some opposition, though. This opposition has mainly come from the League to Save Lake Tahoe led by Jesse Patterson. They say that the planned expansion will have a huge negative impact on the traffic congestion in the area.
Both sides recently met with the Placer Country Planning Commission to see if the expansion can move forward. The meeting was civil in nature and both sides had a chance to make their point.
The commission voted to give the thumbs up to the resort so that they can have an October meeting with the county executive board of directors. This will be the final meeting to decide the fate of the expansion.
Andy Wirth says that his company did not cause the current traffic issues that the county is experiencing. He also says that he has the plan to keep the expansion from having a sizable negative impact on the area when it comes to traffic. Jesse Patterson says that he would like to see that plan in writing.
