Snow Hiking Tip:
Grab a pair of spikes for your boots for hiking over ice and snow. We keep these tucked in our backpacks and pull them out whenever we come across ice on the trail! These little gems are relatively inexpensive, available at most sporting good stores and come in small, medium and large. These spikes are easy to use (just slip them on over your boots) lightweight and they provide additional traction. We love these because let’s face it, falling on the ice can be a real mood killer.
P.S. Our kids wear them too providing extra traction on dodgy ice covered trails! If you are looking for a pair, we purchased our spikes at Ochsner Sport.
