Thinking about trying the Alpine Loop in Colorado in September and wondering if anybody has done this in an XC90?
Stock 2009 V8 R-design with Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV tires

Looking at videos online for most of it a stock jeep had no trouble, but other than a farm roads though a pasture I have not done any offroading.

2013 Stock R-Design 3.2 AWD XC90 with one season Hakka R3s here. I routinely take my XC90 with that configuration into mountain passes in the Canadian Rockies and never have a minutes trouble. I have ascended hills to alpine skiing bases prior to them being plowed or sanded and barely slowed from highway speeds. Last year we had an ice storm that turned a very hilly nearby freeway into a skating rink. Vehicle yard sale everywhere. There are two sections so steep they claim the transmissions out of 18 wheelers near daily - the XC90 never lost grip once. I am absolutely amazed at how well this setup handled extreme winter driving.
