I'd only heard of Ostersund because I knew it was a Gatwick route. Other than that I knew nothing about the place.Was in Sweden last week and asked someone about Ostersund and why EasyJet might fly there from the UK. Asked if it may be for skiing I got a half-hearted "yeah, I guess you might be able to ski somewhere around there" - didn't sound like it's a well-known location (I certainly hadn't heard of it before).
Doing a bit of digging reveals that Ostersund does have some winter sports credentials. It has applied several times, so far unsuccessfully, to be the the host of the Winter Olympics. The Nordic Games have been held there in the past though.
