Not in the same month but both the Winter and Summer Olympics were held in the same year through 1992. After 1992, the Winter and Summer Olympics are held two years apart. The Summer Games are in a leap year and the Winter Games are in the even numbered year between leap years.

Why were winter Olympics held in 1992 and1994?

The summer and winter games used to be held the same year, every four years. The IOC decided to let the winter and summer games be stand alone events and alternate them every two years (still leaving 4 years between each summer games and each winter games). The choice was either to have 2 years between winter games or 6 years between games. In some sports, 6 years can be the entire length of an athletes career, so that would eliminate some athletes from ever having the opportunity to compete in the games. It also wouldn't hurt the bottom line to hold more games instead of less games.

When did the winter Olympics go from 4 to 2 years?

They didn't. The Winter Olympics are still held every four years, but as of 1994 Winter Olympic years are midway between Summer Olympic years. Before 1994, the Winter Olympics and Summer Olympics were held in the same years. The only Winter Olympics that were two years apart were the 1992 Games and the 1994 Games.
