'Undercover Boss' Features Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows CEO

Posted: Updated:

Tonight's episode of Undercover Boss features a few popular area ski resorts.

"This is a small town. Everybody knows each other. If they thought you were doing a show, then we might be able to pull it off."

Andy Wirth is the CEO of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts in the North Tahoe area. He says he wanted to be on the reality show to figure out exactly what's going on at his resorts. "In between the capital plans, and stragetic plans, and delivery of guest service and a great experience is our staff. Critical and central."

He works with Olympic gold medalist Jonny Moseley to keep his true identity a secret while going through the resorts' operations. 

"They created a reality show and had me be the host. And we would go right in the most busy parts of Alpine and Qquaw, and I'd create a scene and I'd interview people. And so when they brought the cameras out to do Andy's part, everyone just thought, 'oh, it's Moseley."

Wirth helps teach kids snowboarding and trains on a simulated rescue mission.

Wirth said he's proud of his employees and said he learned from the experience just how passionate they really are.

You can watch it all tonight on Undercover Boss at 8 pm right here on Channel 2.
