Events at Östersund Ski Stadium

Beautifully situated overlooking Lake Storsjön, Östersund Ski Stadium is a competition arena for winter sports of high international class. Its location is unique with the city centre only 15 minutes’ walk and the airport 15 minutes’ drive away. The Ski Stadium has a biathlon arena and is lit to allow evening events to be televised and a permanent grandstand for 6,000 spectators.

There are exercise tracks, illuminated tracks and competition tracks that all start from the ski stadium. There is a car park and public waxing hut right next to the stadium. When you have finished your activity, you can take a sauna free of charge in Utsikten, located in the eastern part of the stadium, next to the Arctura restaurant. The exercise and competition tracks start and finish at the stadium’s track map. The ski tracks are linked together with Spikbodarna-Odensala-Torvalla.
