Applying non-skid material to deck?

We are building a new cedar deck and would like to make sure that it is not slippery in the New England winter. Is there anything that can be added to stain to add a little texture to keep the deck from becoming slick?

Nope anything added would never stay stuck to just stain.

you might want to put something like non slip stair treads on the stairs.

of course, a few inches of snow renders all but the most agressive stair treads useless until cleared.

The link below will take you to a recent similar discussion although it was about a painted porch. The images of non-skid treads I found might be of interest. Obviously they can be as treacherous as none at all when clogged with snow and ice. Your snow shovel may catch on them as well? Of course their are elaborate electric stair tread heaters and snow and ice melter pads if you do not mind your electric bill being through the roof.
