If you check the weather for Mount Rogers, Virginia for the past weekend, February 11 and 12, 2012, you will see extreme conditions. The temperature at the trailhead near Massie Gap was 4 degrees Farenheit at 5 P.M. Saturday afternoon. I don't know how far the temperature went below that. The wind speed was 25-35 with gusts to 58 according to the national weather service.
We camped near Wilburn Ridge. The tent was rock solid all night. It flapped a little but when staked properly it is stout. The snow slid off easily. The fly reaches all the way to the ground so wind did not enter under the fly. It is roomy. Condensation has never been a problem; vent low-high with the doors.
We were afraid it might get flattened by the wind. It performed admirably. I'm not going to Everest. So, I'm not worried about it standing up those conditions. It is a good four-season tent for the conditions described above.
