Hiking with Crampons

Lisa C. Community, Daily Life, Newcomer Information

Do you plan to go hiking in early spring? Make sure you check the trail condition and be prepared to bring your crampon with you.

Crampons are a type of device that you put on your shoes to improve mobility on snow and ice. Wearing crampons gives your feet a better grip on ice and packed snow, preventing slips and falls.
