The winter Olympics began in 1924 and through 1992 when the Winter Olympics were held in Albertville, France they occurred every 4 years in the same year as the summer Olympics. At that time it was determined that the Winter and Summer Olympics would occur every 4 years alternating every two years.

Therefore, in order to get onto a 2 year cycle, the Winter Olympics were held two years after the 1992 games in 1994 in Lillehammer, Norway. After 1994 they resumed the 4 year cycle, occurring in 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010.

The Summer games maintained the 4 year cycle, and occurred 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and will occur again in 2012.

They didn't. The Winter Olympics are still held every four years, but as of 1994 Winter Olympic years are midway between Summer Olympic years. Before 1994, the Winter Olympics and Summer Olympics were held in the same years. The only Winter Olympics that were two years apart were the 1992 Games and the 1994 Games.
