The significance of t he winter olympics is to emphasize the outdoor olympics that require snow or a certain type of terrain. Also the countries come together as one showing proving that their are connections between them all even though they may be competing

The Winter Olympic Games multi-sport event held every four years. They feature winter sports held on snow or ice, such as Alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, figure skating, bobsledding and ice hockey. Cross-country skiing, figure skating, ice hockey, Nordic combined, ski jumping, and speed skating have been competed at every Winter Olympics since 1924. Other athletic events have been added as the Games have progressed. Some of these events, such as luge, short track speed skating, and freestyle skiing have earned a permanent spot on the Olympic programme. Others, like speed skiing, bandy, and skijring have been demonstration sports but never incorporated officially as an Olympic sport.
