Microblog: Hiking On The Snow

Did you know that hiking on snow can actually help in your efforts to leave no trace and hike sustainably?

It fits under Leave No Trace Principle 2: travel and camp on durable surfaces.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The snow acts as a protective barrier between the impact of your feet and the ground beneath, leading to much less erosion, damage to delicate flora, and disruption to burrowing animals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, even with snow’s protective barrier, you still want to stay on the established trails!
