Adventure Mom TV Kahtoola Snow Spikes review

While attending the Outdoor Retailer Show in January, my 5 year old son found these huge blocks of ice and wanted to walk on them. It must be a boy thing to see something and want to conquer it.


The people at Kahtoola fitted him with a pair of their snow spikes and he walked on the ice!


Then all of the sudden he jumped on the ice and I had a near heart attack! I thought is was going to slip and hit is head. Amazingly, he was still standing. The spikes dig into the ice and keep up standing.

We love them so much we are awarding them Adventure Mom Award for best snow spikes:
