I use trail runners on snow, then micro-spikes if it's super icy.

An old school version of microspikes are a few machine screws placed around the perimeter of the sole of the trail shoe.

A climbing partner of mine moved to Anchorage and that is what she does when she runs in the winter.

I don't. I trail run in the hills behind my house. Several hundred acres of dirt road and trail which is fairly hilly. It is at less than 1500 feet, but it works for me. You take what you can get for training.
