Being at an age where a prattfall might result in needing some part replacements, we found a product that really saved out butts (literally) this winter season, and let us get out hiking more than we usually would (and with the winter we had in Western NY, sometimes just made it a helluva lot easier to get to the mailbox).
It's called "Yaktrax", and they're ice grippers that pull onto shoes or boots with an elastic band; They're easy to use, and VERY effective on ice or hardpacked snow. They fit in a jacket pocket when not needed. They're available at sporting goods stores, some shoe stores, and online at www.yaktrax.com.
