Part of a planned upcoming summer trip might involve crossing rather large snowfields at about 9000 feet. I am conflicted as to whether wearing my Vasque trail runners (which should be ideal for all other portions of the trip) will offer any kind of footing on snow/ice? I suppose I could try a pair of Katahoola's...but $129 seems kind of steep. Has anyone had any luck walking on snow in sneakers? I am so miserable lately in boots that I would probably attempt another route if I had to wear boots.
