Sierra Designs' lightweight Mountain Guide Tarp is a durable shelter for winter expeditions and summer alpine campsites. This fully seam taped tarp protects you from the burliest conditions with reliable waterproofing. In winter, dig out a 10-inch snow pit and extend the telescoping center pole to provide more head room. For summer adventures, open the adjustable access port with the roll-back door to ensure sufficient ventilation. The Mountain Guide also features a roof vent to prevent over-condensation, snow flaps for additional protection in winter's weather, and reflective guy out points for an easier setup.


Designed in conjunction with the team at Alaska Mountain Guides, the Mountain Guide Tarp is a durable group shelter suitable for expedition use or the perfect lightweight addition to an advanced base camp. Reflective guy out points and snow flaps keep this structure stable and roomy no matter what the mountain brings.
