What's the difference between the Summer Olympics and the Winter Olympics? The events! The Winter Olympics mostly include sports enjoyed in snow and ice or winter sports such as hockey, speed skating, snowboarding and many more. The Summer Olympic has a similar format to the Winter Olympics, but it is hosted in the summer time with mostly outdoor and indoor sports such as track & field, swimming, basketball and many more. The Summer Olympics is generally more popular and welcomed because of the "commonness" or popularity of the sports in it.
Moguls, biathlon, luge and ice skating are some events.
