Winter Olympics Host City List

The winter Olympic Games were first held in 1924, beginning a tradition of holding them a few months earlier and in a different city than the summer Olympic Games. Beginning in 1994, the winter Olympic Games were held in completely different years (two years apart) than the summer Games. Winter Games were held just two years apart in 1992 and 1994 to achieve this.
