A Short History of Glisse
1969: SoCal surfer Mike Doyle invents the Bahne Doyle Single Ski, soon to be known as the monoski.
1986: A record 120,000 monoskis are sold-mostly in France.
1995: Rossignol stops producing monoskis. Four years later it sells the last of its inventory.
2001: L'Association Francaise de Monoski is formed to promote the dying sport and throw "Monopride" parties.
2003: Sleeper cells of L'Association monoskieurs (left, at Verbier) attempt to violently (well, garishly) regain a foothold in Europe.
2005: Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declares monoskiers "glisse terrorists." Hellfire missiles rain down on Chamonix.
