Welcome to Olympic Valley Chapel


Olympic Valley Chapel’s award-winning design was the first of its kind. The building quickly became known as the “potato chip” church because of its resemblance to a Pringles potato chip. This is the story behind its unusual design, why it was built, and the connection with the Olympic Valley community today - Click Here


Whoever you are, wherever you are on your life's spiritual journey, you are welcome here.

Squaw Valley Chapel Ministers.jpg

Pictured above are three past ministers of Olympic Valley Chapel - from left to right: Art Domingue, James Kosco, and Guthrie Swartz. Guthrie was the minister of our beloved Chapel from 1994 to 2002. We are sad to say Guthrie passed away in Ashland, OR, at the age of 97 on April 30th, 2023. It was Guthrie’s vision and compassionate leadership that brought our Chapel back to life after being abandoned in the late 60’s. He and his wife Betty led a dedicated group of friends and members of the community to refurbish the building and grow a welcoming faith community. His warmth, wit, and loving heart were perfectly matched by his gifts as a faith leader, fund-raiser, and inspiring organizer. We are so grateful for the legacy he left us all.
