On August 28, 1958, at the behest of Representative B. F. Sisk, the United States Board on Geographic Names decided that "Squaw Valley" would only refer to an older community in Fresno County. Nevertheless, in informal usage, "Squaw Valley" continued to refer to either community, creating considerable confusion. As of 2022, the United States Postal Service recommends "Olympic Valley" as the city name for the 96146 ZIP code)
