Algeria at the Winter Olympics

Algeria has appeared in three editions of the Winter Olympic Games in 1992, 2006 and 2010.

Algeria made its Winter Games debut in 1992. The nation has a decent performance at the Summer Games as it already won 17 medals, but unfortunately the nation is still seeking its first medal at the Winter Games.

Nacera Boukamoum earned the distinction of becoming the first ever Algerian athlete to compete at the Winter Games in 1992 when he was entered in the alpine skiing competition.
