    That you Jeff for the breakdown and difference between each.

    I’ve order my microspikes and looking forward to practicing with them on packed snow and ice where there is already some tread laid down. At this time, anything more that this is something I’m not comfortable with. Next year, as my experience grows with winter hiking I hope to try snowshoeing and add crampons to my gear. Late in 2017 I saw some groups hikes and classes for winter hiking and I’ll be looking to build with those too next year. Who knew this winter would be so short.
