>(That's INSIDE the tent, btw.)
Ha! Point well taken. A picture really is worth a thousand words and a thousand cases of frostbite.
However, (and I'll shut up about this after this comment), the Moment does appear to be designed to take a pretty strong wind, given its slope from apex to end. Also, The end vents, which are small to start with, can be covered with its storm flaps. The side mesh can be pitched so that its vertical, and I assume that the sides can be staked to the ground, as well. The rounded shape is well designed to let the snow slide off with an occasional bang, and the crossed poles look like they add quite a lot of protection against the weight load of snow.
In fact, it's one of the most storm-worthy single walls I've ever seen.
Still, the proof is in the pudding, as Roger's image suggests. Our Ohio winters are not nearly so nasty as other places. I might try the tent in the Little Smokies of Shawnee State Park, where the weather is a bit more demanding, just to find out.
And that's all I have to say about that. (Oy -- three cliches at least in this post. Sorry).
