Yes. As an Olympic sport, figure skating was originally a part of the Summer Games, since most rinks were outdoors at that time. It was contested in 1908 and 1920. Figure skating has been a Winter Olympic sport since 1924.

When did figure skating become a Winter Olympic sport?

44 years ago Not so. Figure Skating first appeared in 1908 at the London Summer Games featuring 4 events (one being "special figures" that afterward was not contested separately from the singles event). Figure Skating next appeared at the 1924 Winter Olympics held in Chamonix, France and with the exception of the 1940 and 1944 Games that were suspended because of WW II, figure skating has been a permanent fixture at the Winter Olympics. So figure skating has been a Winter Olympics sport for 88 years - double your 44.
