Boot Packing The mechanical reworking of snow to harden it and to prevent depth hoar formation, usually by a large number of people walking up and down the slopes. This affects deeper layers than ski-cutting. This compresses any depth hoar which has formed and helps prevent its formation by decreasing pore space. Boot packing increases snow density and strength. This method is generally limited to small areas due to the manpower required.
