Hi Alex, Many crampons have what are known as anti-balling plates attached to their underside. These help to push snow off the crampon. If your crampons don't have anti-balling plates then you might be able to purchase some from the manufacturer of your crampons. However, more technical crampons are often incompatible with anti-balling plates so you might have to try and invent something with duck tape or else kick the snow off yourself every so often. Hope that helps, Dave
