What country proposed the winter olympic games?

That really wasn't proposed by a country. An Italian count named Eugenio Brunetta d'Usseaux suggested that the International Olympic Committee hold winter events as part of the 1912 Games in Stockholm. This was not done, but the idea was brought up again and it was decided to hold winter events at the 1916 Games in Berlin. Those games were cancelled due to World War I. It wasn't until 1924 that winter events made their debut in the Olympics as part of the Summer Games. They were such a huge success that the International Olympic Committee decided to hold a separate Winter Olympics every four years and designated the events held in 1924 as the first Winter Olympics.
