    Few tracks before me. Ancient rascal, rensho, and snowjrky I think.



    Do you call this slushy mud or muddy slush?

    I think it really depends on the snow... we did a similar ride last spring and although we all had pretty different tires, thay all had problems...

    On our way back it began to warm up and everyone did a bit better, at least the snow did not stick to the tires.

    Might post this up in the COLORADO forum ;-) They should be experts?!

    Good luck!

    My continental mountain kings work well for me. Killer traction.

    My 26" x 3" Nokian Gazzaloddi (front) and 24" x 3" Arrow Racing Wide Bite (rear) seemed to do well in both the snow and the mucky yucky stuff, but neither was designed for a standard mountain bike. The Nokian Gazzaloddi was designed and manufactured in Finland, where snow seems to be an everyday subject, the Arrow Racing tire is a DH tire. Mounted on 65mm wide Surly Large Marge rims, they provide a really wide contact patch, but lots of drag on the faster sections. My tracks would have been the widest ones you perhaps had encountered—I was about 8 minutes behind Rensho (he’s an animal!!!) on the climb up Kennedy.
    Don’t frail and blow if you’re going to Braille and Flow.

    even the trail kings work quite well. I climbed to packer saddle on top of ICE / Snow mix and they held very well.

    Maxxis wet sceams or any other mud spike tire. Its the closest you can get to a true studded ice tire.
