Winter Olympic Games

The Winter Olympic Games are the ultimate in spectacle and winter sports.


Updated February 08, 2014

Event: Winter Olympic Games

Date: Every four years, usually in February. The 2014 Winter Olympic Games begin on February 7, 2014.

Location: The 2010 Winter Olympic Games were held in Vancouver, Canada. The 2014 Winter Olympic Games are in Sochi, Russia. The 2018 Winter Olympic Games will be in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Organizer: The International Olympic Committee

What to do: Watch and be moved! The Winter Olympic Games give your family the opportunity to watch sports that are not often televised (curling, anyone?) and to learn more about amazing athletes and their home cities and countries. My free "12 Weeks of Winter Games" newsletter suggests winter activities and games for families; many are inspired by Winter Olympic events. And you'd be surprised how many of the sports you can actually try for yourself!
