Chamrousse is the only French ski resort to host all the alpine skiing events at the 1968 Olympic Games, and still today remains a commemorative cauldron, a unique and highly symbolic heritage.
In 2018, for the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Olympic Games, the Chamrousse Olympic cauldron was highlighted and rekindled.
Since then, it sits proudly on the Place de Belledonne in front of the Tourist Office and the Chamrousse Ski Lift Authority.

The inauguration cauldron of the 1968 Olympic Games is in Grenoble, the "mother city" of the winter sports events. It was the figure skater Alain Calmat who lit the cauldron of the Olympic flame during the opening ceremony on February 6th, 1968.

More information in the book "Grenoble 1968. Les Jeux olympiques qui ont changé l'Isère", special edition Chamrousse, 192 pages, Glénat, on sale at the Tourist Offices of Chamrousse.
