    Summer Sledge Track, situated by the upper station of the cable railway, was built and launched in 1997. It winds its serpentine way of the length of 710m along nine turnings and has about 50m of difference in levels. The maximum speed of the ride is 30 km/h.

    The speed of the ride is controlled by the rider with the use of a brake and is additionally limited by the centrifugal brake which works automatically. The sledges are taken back to the starting place by the ski lift over the 200m-long track of guided ride.

    Children under the age of eight can use the slide only when assisted by an adult. The ride on the track is completely safe provided that you respect the track usage rules, information signs and the instructions of the staff.

    Undoubtedly one of the most interesting touristic attractions in Ustroń is the chairlift on Czantoria Mountain existing since 1967, which is located in one of the parts of Ustron called Polana, near the road from Katowice to Wisla. Such location makes the place easy to reach by car as well as by public transport (bus or train). There's also guarded parking place near the lower station. Moreover tourists have at their disposal restaurants and, during winter, left-luggage office and ski equipment hiring establishment.

    The lower station of the cable railway is sited at an altitude of 389m. Up from there you are taken by a four chair lift to an altitude of 851m, which takes about 6 minutes. You can walk up the touristic track to reach the peak of Czantoria Wielka (alt. 993m), where there is an open touristic border crossing with the Czech Republic.
    From the view tower situated at the top you can admire beautiful views on both sides of the border. The top of Czantoria Wielka is a convenient spot to start the ramble over the trails of Beskid Śląski.

    Children under the age of ten can travel by the cable railway only when assisted by an adult, whereas babies can only be carried in slings.
