Mexico first participated at the 1928 Winter Olympic Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland and then did not compete again from 1932 to 1980. From 1984 they have participated in all Winter Games except 1998 and 2006.
The biggest contingent was in 1992 at the Albertville Winter Olympics when Mexico sent 20 athletes. In 2014 there was just one competitor from Mexico.
Mexico's team at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018 consists of four athletes — the biggest delegation it has had at the Winter Games since in 1992, although their links to Mexico is varied. Alpine Skier Sarah Schleper was born in the USA and has competed for the USA at four previous Winter Olympics, and is now competing for her Mexican husband's country of birth. Another Alpine skier Rodolfo Roberto Dickson was born in Mexico, though was adopted at age 3 to a Canadian family. Cross-country skier German Madrazo grew up in Mexico but moved to the USA. A triathlete, he only took up the sport in 2017 at the age of 42. Freestyle skier Robert Franco is competing for Mexico based on his Guadalajaran father.
Mexico has yet to capture its first medal at the Winter Games.
- Mexico made its debut in the Winter Olympics at St Moritz in 1928 when they competed in the five-man bobsleigh, finishing 11th.
- In Sarajevo 1984 Mexico's sole competitor was Alpine skier Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, who had been born in Mexico while his father worked there. He also competed for Mexico in 1988, 1992, 1994 and 2010. At the 2014 Winter Olympics at age 55 he was Mexico's sole athlete. He participated in the slalom but did not finish after a fall. Hohenlohe earned the distinction of becoming the second oldest Winter Olympian of all time, and his 30 years of Olympic experience shatter the longest period of competing at the Winter Games.
- At the 1988 Winter Olympics, four brothers made up both of Mexico's teams in the 2-man bobsled event - Eduardo, Jorge, Adrian and Roberto Tames - the most siblings to compete in a single Winter Olympic Games event.
