So I am going to be purchasing a Mega Tarp soon and am going to be going on a couple winter outings and wanted to put the MegaTarp through its paces. I have a Supertarp right now but haven't had to use it in any weather. I may bring it along too just to see how it fairs. But the place I will be taking them is an exposed ridge at 6,000 feet and will be pitching on a lot of snow. I went to this location in June and had to leave once we got camp set up because the weather was too bad and we only had 3 season tents and we got nervous. I have more confidence in my K shelters now. Anyway, what is the best way to pitch a mega, super or any K shelter for that matter on snow and a lot of it? I know they offer SST pins and I may order a few but they are spendy, I may also make my own and I may try some MSR or Hilleberg snow stakes as well. Anyway what have you guys used in the past to help you out in deep snow? I will be snowshoeing in and have a snow shovel obviously. I have talked to a few guys (Justin Davis, Aron etc...) but was curious what tips or tricks you have used when pitching your K shelters or any tarp type shelter in these conditions?
