I trudged through some sand on a Japanese beach with a 58hp Justy. I don't think the Crosstrek will have issues. Well, unless you were fully loaded trying it. Then, I would just say don't try it while fully loaded.
Well it was compact snow with wet sand under it.

I have the CVT and had it in manual mode 1st gear. 2nd gear wouldnt even spin the tires. Hell 1st barely would. Had to rock it a million times forward and reverse with 2 friends pushing to get some momentum up and get out.

Also tried to dig out and use my mats, sticks and rocks for traction.

I also had winter tires on that were a little smaller and not as much tread as stock tires.
