    Personal experience: Hiked Cucamonga today. Most north facing trails had 2-3” of snow after last Monday’s storm, particularly the section beyond the Saddle. I had gotten the Hillsound Free Steps 6 Traction Device For the occasion (size large for my Merrill size 11 hiking shoes stayed on perfectly). I loved it; combined with my trekking poles it gave me more stability and I felt more secure. You really don’t want to slip down those slopes. Hardly noticed them, even on patches without snow. Glad I got them.
