There are very good possibilities for cross country skiing in Östersund for all levels, beginners to professionals. You will find everything from steep and tough upphill-slopes at the ski stadium where the national teams in cross country and biathlon and excercisers are training, to the "ski play-area" at Frösön and the excursion tracks on lake Storsjön. In other words, everything from hard training to skiing with picnic in a nice combination!
The season starts in november thanks to saved snow during the summer under a bed of sawdust and thanks to snow making machines.
If you don't have your own equipment you can rent it at Intersport on the ski stadium, where you also can take ski lessons to improve your technique and try biathlon.
