325 Squaw Valley Road sits in the heart of Squaw Valley. There is quite a bit of history associated with this property. The Washoe Indians at one point spent their summer months here and near Squaw Creek arrowheads have been found and there is an old grinding stone as well. The Poulsen Family have taken care of this since the early 40's. There are mountain views in every direction and the ranch has a mixture of ponds, flowing water, wildlife and lush meadows with lots of grass, wild flowers, Pine trees and Aspen trees. The home has a European feel with stone fireplaces, large windows, large Redwood beams and wrought iron accents. The 29.6 acres consists of two parcels with mixed zoning. 14.74 acres are zoned High Density Residential (HDR), 13.66 acres are zoned Conservation Preserve and 1.2 acres are Forest Recreation zoning.

Wayne Poulsen is a skiing pioneer and visionary and is known as the founder of Squaw Valley. As a young Boy Scout he made his own pair of skis. In his teens he continued to learn about the Sierras as a snow surveyor. His passion influenced the history of skiing at Squaw Valley and in the Sierras. He visited Squaw Valley on a fishing trip in the early 30's and it was at this time he conceived the idea of a world class ski area overlooking the Squaw Valley. He worked in Sun Valley, ID as a ski instructor where he met his wife Sandy Kunau. They married in 1942. They purchased 640 acres in 1943 from Southern Pacific Railroad and camped along Squaw Creek living off the land. One day they took a hike up the mountain, Wayne skied down then he watched Sandy making kick turns in the trees when he counted 22 kick turns which is how KT-22 got it's name. In 1948, he, Alex Cushing and Laurance Rockefeller teamed up to create Squaw Valley. This partnership did not last long when Wayne was fed up with Cushing's development style just before opening day in 1949. The Winter Olympics in 1960 put Squaw on the map. Wayne and Sandy formed Squaw Valley Land and Livestock Co. after purchasing 2000 acres. They raised eight boys and girls. Three were on the U.S. Ski Team and two make it to the 1972 Olympics. In 1974 Wayne was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame for skiing, in 1980 he was elected to the US National Ski Hall of Fame, in 2004 they were awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Squaw Valley Institute and in 2005 Poulsen Peak was named after him.
