Hm, I wonder if you could get any skins for those snowblades. Could be a good way to travel light backcountry because you'd have some good flotation (better than boots, prolly not quite like snowshoes) and you could slide through the downhill parts of your hike instead of walk them. You could walk up the hill with this sort of pattern

and maybe not even need skins all that bad. They are nice and short so you wouldn't have to worry about crossing them. Just get the widest snowblades you can find....
