    I've been using the Terra Nova Blizzard 2 for the last two years. Very nice 4 season tent that won't break the bank ( $350 to 375.00 range).

    Free standing?: No (tent requires guy lines to be pitched)
    Minimum Weight: 2.03Kg (4lb 8oz)
    Packed Weight: 2.2Kg (4lb 14oz)
    Pitch Time (estimate): 10 mins
    Number of Porches: 1

    Fast setup and take down and packs down nicely.

    I use the North Face VE-25 (3 person) for all of the extreme winter conditions and it works great during heavy winters.

    Becker's Terra Nova Blizzard is very nice and well designed.

    I have a Tarptent Scarp 2 double wall, silnylon tent but I had to modify with under-the-fly crossing poles it for winter use (high winds and snow load). I even bought a heavy duty main hoop pole for it.
