History:

The three Kollbakenne, which were also called Jøssingbakkene or Hjulabakkene for some time, were built in 1942 and 1943 by IL Troll. While the two smaller ski jumps had natural inruns, there was a rail device on the tower of the largest, which allowed the jumpers to change the inrun length.
In the 1940's and 1950's, many competitions took place on the ski jumps - some even on national level. During World War II, when sports activities were not allowed, these events were held secretly and illegal. On peak days, over 100 jumpers jumped here on a single day and a lot of spectators were curious to watch these talents.
At the end of the 1950's, the interest in the facility got less and less and so it was closed and later demolished.
