Such a tent does not exist and any truely reliable snow tent will be 4 lbs. roughly or more. The best I have found for this is the MK series from Integral Designs and they are not "cheap".

Google "Integral Designs" and pay particular attention to the "tactical" section of the site and the tents shown there, which can be purchased in the US, there is a dealer in Montana. I was about to buy my third of their tents and an "as new" MKI-Lite in "olive" just popped up for sale on a hunting forum and I grabbed it...sometimes, one can find these used.

A Shangri-La 1 w/ a floor weighs 1 lb, 12 oz packed. If you take the nest instead (for the biting bugs) then you're looking at 2 lb, 3 oz. using your trekking/ski polles, it is extremely strong and is a great 4 seaon shelter.

There are numerous threads on this topic in the Gear Selection category....a myriad of information.  Take a some time and scour previous posts and I think you will get the information you are looking for.
