Where was 1990 winter Olympics?

Great question. In 1992, the Winter Olimpics were in Albertive, France. Also, in 1994, the winter games were held in Lillihammer, Norway. They have returned to the traditional four year time frame between games, since then. But, there were no winter games in 1990. Note: It used to be that the Summer and Winter Olympics were held in the same year since the start of the Winter Olympics in 1924. At first the same country that hosted the Summer Games also hosted the Winter Games; this was France in 1924 (Winter Games in Chamonix; Summer Games in Paris). In 1928 this had changed, with the Winter Games being held in St. Moritz (Switzerland) and the Summer Games in Amsterdam (Netherlands). It wasn't until after the 1992 Games (the XXVth Summer Games in Barcelona, Spain and the XVIth Winter Games in Albertville, France) that the IOC decided to split them up. The Summer Games stayed on their original quadrennial schedule, with the Games of the XXVIth Olympiad being held in Atlanta (USA) in 1996; but the next Winter Olympics were moved up two years to 1994 with the XVIIth Winter Games being held in Lillehammer, Norway. From that point on the Winter Games again started observing the traditional four-year gap between Games.


When does winter Olympics take place?

The 2010 Winter Olympics were held February 12 through February 28 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The Winter Olympics occur every four years. The next Winter Games are being held in the year 2014 in Russia. And of course, it is during winter :) Until 1992, the summer and winter Olympics were held in the same year, but the decision was made to move the winter Olympics off to the other even-numbered years, beginning with the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. That way, if you refer to, for example, "the 2014 Olympics," there is no need to specify "winter."


Why is there a four year gap between each summer olympic games?

The spacing of the modern Olympics follows that of the ancient Greek games, where a four-year span on a calendar was also known as an "olympiad" and was a defined epoch of time. The modern version of the Olympics began in 1896, and the Winter Olympics in 1924, being held in years evenly divisible by 4. In 1986, it was decided that the Winter Olympics would be offset by 2 years from the Summer Games, beginning in 1992. So there were Winter Olympics in both 1992 and 1994 (XVI and XVII Winter Olympiads), with the next Winter Games held in 1998.
