GET A GRIP
Hard snow, icy patches, and steep slopes might require additional traction.
Chains BEST USES ››
Snowy trails or flats, especially when running or moving quickly.
Chain-style traction typically lacks the bite required for icy hills.
Microspikes BEST USES ››
Icy terrain or gentle slopes with safe fall zones.
Spikes can provide a false sense of security and aren’t meant for steep, firm terrain.
Crampons BEST USES ››
Hard snow, steep slopes, and no-fall zones.
Crampons should be used with mountaineering boots and an ice axe.
