    In any conditions where a lightweight narrow snowshoe doesn't sink in (groomed trail or shallow ungroomed snow), I think I'd rather be on XC skis. (And I say this as someone who runs 1500 miles/year.)

    Looks like you probably just go for a regular old run on that softpack. Also, ditch the poles!
