Monoskiing


Monoskiing

Monoskiing is a snow sport, just about similar a monoboard or Snowboard in the sense that both feet are attached to the same board. The principal difference between Snowboarding and Monoskiing is that the latter uses Skiing Poles.

The main equipment used in this sport is a Monoski, a longer, broader ski is used for powder while a shorter, narrower ski is used for groomed snow. Here the feet are side-by-side and pointing in the direction of the board, and standard ski bindings are used as well as non-releasing bindings like on snowboards and skwals.

Monoskiing sport was developed in the early 60's by the legendary surfer Mike Doyle, during 1980's its popularity increased, but not for so long since Snowboarding began. In spite of the fact that its popularity didn't last for quite a long time, we can see some enthusiasts of Monoskiing who practice this sport, still.
