The north shore communities of Lake Tahoe have had a difficult time over the last few years. Winter resorts were affected by the epic drought and as a result, small businesses that rely on the resorts were also affected. Additionally, apart from the natural challenge, the communities had a political challenge to deal with. An incorporation battle existed over the Olympic Valley that hosts the Squaw Valley Resort and several other popular winter sports terrain in North America.
Despite of the challenges, there was relieve for the two concerns. Andy Wirth the CEO and president of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings pointed out that the past four years had been tough. However, this season, the Squaw Valley as well as other Lake Tahoe resorts opened weeks earlier as compared to the last decade. That was made possible by early season storms, which combined with cold temperatures.
Additionally, Supporters of the incorporation endeavor that Wirth regarded as a threat to the region’s civic climate and business offered a political relief. They officially withdrew from their attempt to incorporate Olympic Valley. Squaw Valley intends to enhance its real estate via more commercial and residential development. Plans are also underway for a gondola, which will connect Squaw Valley with the Alpine Meadows Ski areas.
According to Fred Ilfield, a pro incorporation organizer, Ski holdings spent a lot of money to oppose the incorporation. That is because they did not want the future town council to make decisions on land use. Instead, they are relying on influencing Placer County supervisors. Wirth rejected this view. He noted that the incorporation group also spent so much money in their drive.
However, the money spent did not overcome the decision by the Local Agency Formation Commission. It determined that the new town would not be financially feasible. Wirth noted that he wants the community to work cohesively.
That is on transportation and other matters now that the incorporation effort has been thwarted. He added that the issue had been divisive and he hoped that they will view it as an opportunity for healing.
