How to repair slippery grass path?

9 years ago

Along the side of our house, in the shade, is a strip of the yard and is how we get to the back yard. It's a slope downhill to the back yard. It's planted with grass, and doesn't do too well in the winter. Now the grass is very thin, and trying to get back there in the winter is tough, because the dirt's exposed and it's quite slippery.

I'm trying to figure out how to make it safe to walk on until the grass starts growing again in the spring. I'd rather not pave it if I can help it, is there anything I can spread on there to give traction without destroying the lawn?
