The winter Olympics are no longer held in the same year as the summer games. The next winter games will be in 2010 and held in Vermount.
The last year the Winter Games and Summer Games were held in the same year was 1992. The next Winter Games were held in 1994 (Lillehammer) and the next Summer Games were held in 1996 (Atlanta).
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.
The IOC voted in the 1980's to have the Winter Games not be in the same year as the Summer Games. Thus 1992 was the last year they were both in the same year followed by another Winter Games in 1994, Summer Games in 1996, Winter in 1998 and so on. The next Winter Games is in Vancouver in 2010 and the Summer Games are in 2012 in London.
The Summer Olympics and Winter Olympics were held in the same year every four years until 1992. The summer games continued on their four-year cycle, but the winter games were held again just two years later in 1994 before returning to a four-year cycle.

The Olympics are held every four years. However the Summer and Winter Olympics are not held in the same year. There is a two year gap between the Summer and Winter Olympics. There are Summer Olympic games in 2012 and 2016 and 2020 and every four years after that. There are Winter Olympics games in 2014, 2018, 2022 and every four years after that.
1992 was the last year that the Winter and Summer games were in the same year. In order to get in to the pattern of alternating Winter and Summer games, the Winter games had to come early.
The summer and winter Olympics started occurring on separate years in the 1990's. 1992 was the last time when they were both in the same year. In 1994, the Winter Olympics took place in their own year for the first time. Two years later were the summer games in Atlanta; no winter games took place that year.

In 1924, the first modern Winter Games were held in Chamonix, France.
