Best Answer

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.
