My last info has been that the graders made it to Marble Canyon about 1/3 of the way from pavement to the Bat Rd. Both passes can wash out and become impassable after the first rain or snow. The roads do not get graded to the springs. The graders do not grade the Bat Rd so the last 7 miles sometimes are the worst part.

North Pass in good condition. Upper part is being graded so much smoother. Last hour and a half still washboarded but driveable.

I don't know about a specific brand but always get link chains (with the studs) and not the ones they sale for cars (radial tires). You want as much bite as you can get off road.
