Pretty happy so far with this shelter. Have had it up now for about a month. In south eastern Ontario. Has been through two snowfalls of about 10cm so far, not a lot of snow but it handled with absolutely no issues. Will see how it handles a 50 cm snowfall. The day after a snowfall the snow slowly just falls off depending on if it’s wet or powdery snow and what the temperature is (if it’s mild it loosens the snow from underneath sort of lubricating it so it slides off.
Have had one windstorm of winds gusting 90kmh. Both doors should be closed during one of these storms to prevent kite effect.
Instructions are pretty good. For our tent with the 17oz fabric and 70’x30’ you absolutely need machinery to pull cover over. I would say at least 10 people available to help on the day you pull the cover over. We had three guys. We used 4 pull ropes with an excavator, skid steer,and two atv winches. One machine on each rope and the ropes were VERY tight pulling cover over. We just kept pulling and helping the cover along with long poles with cloth on the end.
Other than the cover all the rest of the construction and tensioning is pretty straight forward.
