Olympic Valley was the site of the 1960 Olympic Games. The original wells and pipes in the Valley were built by the State of California to service these games and many of these original facilities are still in use today. Olympic Valley’s primary industry is winter snow sports and related services although the area is a major tourist destination during any season. Year-round population in the Valley is estimated to be approximately 1,366 people, with a maximum overnight population of approximately 7,000. During peak winter holiday periods, the daily population can swell to 25,000.
The Squaw Valley Public Service District serves the community of Olympic Valley by providing water service, sewage service, solid waste service, fire protection and emergency medical services.
