The Winter Olympics is held every four years, just like the Summer Olympics. Since 1988 they have been held two years after the previous Summer Olympics date. Prior to that time, they were held in the same year as the Summer Olympics was held.
because the summer Olympics come every 4 years and so do the winter Olympics. they alternate every 2 years. so this year is winter and in 2 years in summer
The Summer Olympics occur every 4 years, and the same goes for Winter Olympics; except Winter Olympics take place always 2 years after the Summer Olympics. For example, Summer Olympics went to Beijing in 2008, Winter Olympics went to Vancouver in 2010, and Summer Olympics will come back on in 2012 in London.
On the leap years. Every four years, but the Winter and Summer Olympics are staggered so that a ceremony takes place every four years. 2000 -- Sydney -- Summer 2002 -- Salt Lake City -- Winter 2004 -- Athens -- Summer 2006 -- Turin -- Winter 2008 -- Beijing -- Summer 2010 -- Vancouver -- Winter 2012 -- London -- Summe

These are the "games of the 20th Winter Olympiad", meaning that there were 19 previous events. In general, the Olympics come every 4 years. The exceptions were 1992/1994--that's when they decided to do the Summer and Winter games in separate years, so there's some kind of Olympics every two years. Also, there were no games during World War II (1940/1944). The first Winter Games were held in 1924.
