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.
