Only a few hundred meters from Kullstabacken, on the way to the top of the mountain, you will find something unusual: a rodel track where both European championships as well as world cups have been held! If you dare to go down the icy track you will be rewarded with a diploma and a serious kick of adrenaline!
“Hammarstrand’s Bob- and Rodelclub” has a long tradition. Already in 1960 the club was formed and for the winter season of 1963 the track was ready from the 700 meter mark and the following year to the 1000 meter mark. The track received international affirmation and its first world champs was arranged in 1967. Hammarstrand also hosted the world cups of 1975 and 1981. European masterships were arranged in 1970, 1976, 1978 and 1986.
