Why were there Winter Olympics in 1992 and 1994?

A decision was made in 1986 that the winter and summer Olympics would no longer be during the same year. This is why today the winter and summer Olympics are two years apart. Therefore, this is why there were winter Olympics in 1992 and 1994. It was due to the change in years for the Olympics. The Winter Olympic Games are much smaller and much less expensive to produce than the Summer Games, which is why there was a "bonus" Winter Olympics in 1994. The last time the Olympic games were held in the same year was 1992: Winter Games in Albertville, France and Summer Games in Barcelona, Spain.

When did summer and winter Olympics split?

Winter and Summer Events used to occur in the same year, divisible by the number 4. However, they frequently occurred at different locations. 1992 was the last year in which the Summer and Winter Olympics were held in the same year. The IOC decided to split the years so that one Olympics would occur every two years. In 1994, the Winter Olympics were held again. Summer Olympics had to wait for the usual four years, until 1996, for their next celebration. Thus now Summer Olympics still only fall on leap years, and Winter Olympics fall either two years before or after a Summer Olympics. Both Olympics are still four years apart, after the initial two-year distance from 1992 to 1994
