I did Cross Mountain Crusher last year, and I'm signed up to do it again this year. Fun ride, the snow was insane last year.

I did it on 38s last year, and IIRC that was just about right for the rougher parts, 35s would be fine too I'm sure, less ok but maybe not ideal.

It's been a few years since I've ridden it, but the descent on Mary Smith Hill Rd is steep and in bad condition. If I were riding anything narrower than 35 mm tires, I'd get off and walk the steepest part (probably around 15-18%).
It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that certain je ne sais quoi.

I don't remember anything being in particular bad shape but its been a minute and it was cold and snowy. I did spin out for a second on the 20% hill but got back in the saddle and off I went. I always use overkill tires but they do come in handy sometimes
