This charming town in the Austrian Tyrol was privileged to hold two Winter Olympics, in 1964 and 1976. In 1964 the organizers feared that the games would be cancelled for lack of snow. It had to be brought in by the army. The luge event made its appearance at the games that year. In 1976, Denver had been chosen to organize the games but the American Ecology movement managed to overturn plans and Innsbruck was chosen as a replacement venue. A new event made its appearance in the ice-skating programme that year, ice-dancing.
