I haven't skied that trail myself, but I'll say this: If you aren't a good skier, certain hiking trails can be a real chore even without a pack. With extra weight up high, you can be certain of even more of a challenge.

Stick with snowshoes if you don't know the trail and are not a proficient skier. Even proficient skiers know better than to ski some trails in the Adirondacks unless they are looking for a good challenge and the conditions are just right.

Something like the Altai Hok would probably be OK to "ski" on most hiking trails as they are short and slow due to integrated skins, but even then, I'd suggest some practice with them and a solid understanding of ski conditions.
