Originally meant to be in Denver, these games had to be held in Innsbruck for the second time in twelve years. This because the Colorado citizens in a referendum decided they would not spend any more money on the venues that were unfinished.

The Soviet Union won the ice hockey gold undefeated, fourth time in a row. Rosi Mittermaier of Germany won two gold medals and a silver in alpine skiing.
