The Gliding Glaciers are a former Marble League team from the island city of Guuk. They met while at the University of Snoronto and became rivals with the university's other main team, the Snowballs.
The Gliding Glaciers were going to debut in Marble League 2017, but they were denied the participation in the 2017 Qualifiers. They officially debuted in the 2018 Qualifiers. Unfortunately, they failed to qualify for Marble League 2018. The next year, the team retired.
Glide, Glidy, Glace, Glacie and Glacier were the members of Gliding Glaciers.
Marble League 2017
The Gliding Glaciers applied for participation in the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers, but their application was rejected by the IMC out of the fear that the team could easily be confused with the similarly-colored Jawbreakers. The Qualifiers seed that would've been for the Gliding Glaciers was later given to the Quicksilvers. The Purple Stars were also to take part in the Qualifiers, but withdrew for an unrelated reason.

The Gliding Glaciers were cleared to participate in Marble League 2018 and competed in the Qualifiers. They were deliberately placed in a different group from the Jawbreakers. The Gliding Glaciers performed poorly and stayed in dead last in their Group for the entirety of the Qualifiers. They didn't even score a single Top 3 finish in any of the four qualifying events. They competed in Group B.

The team surprised most of their opponents by overcoming them and finishing third in the 100 Meter Water Race, behind the Jungle Jumpers and the Limers. It was the highest point of their professional career ever.
During the Amazing Maze Marble Race, it was announced that the Gliding Glaciers had disbanded and would thus not participate in the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers, despite the aforementioned third-place finish in the 100 Meter Water Race. The reason for this was likely due to their failure to qualify for Marble League 2018, a winter-themed competition.
