Never had it in the snow, never even slept in it yet. Just got it in Dec. Can't wait for a good storm forecast. Then I'll head for an exposed ridge at 10,000 ft. in 'Vegas nearby Spring Mountains.
I always felt the Scarp design was a very good one that only needed some minor tweaking for full-on winter duty. That's why I bought it instead of a Hilleberg.
Thanks, glad you like it. The mods were not really "extensive" and W/O crossing poles the only giveaways of the modding are the Velcro cable wraps and corner grommets. The interior X-ing poles still allow the Scarp 2 to be freestanding.
** I can leave the inner tent attatched to the fly everywhere but the roof for packing purposes. That way I have enough working room to attatch the X-ing poles first.
I'll use the lighter main pole in 3 season camping.
It's likely I will sew on tent stake loops around the fly bottom hem for even more "gription". I'll use the original light 10 mm. webbing from the X-ing pole tiedowns, as I did on my TT Moment. Belt-and-suspenders mentality, fer sure.
Gotta say that I feel the winterized Scarp 2 will hold up very well in high winds WITH 4 tie-outs (sides & ends). If not then back to the drawing board (or CAD program).
