I saw what looked like a snow-collapsed Hilleberg AKTO tent in this section. I have a very similar Tarptent Moment DW, mainly for winter. In winter I carry the optional Crossing Pole which I have shortened 5″ to run under the fly for more snow load support.
I did the same with our SCARP 2 and its two Xing Poles. Both tents have short, double-sided Velcro cable ties sewn under the fly (at reinforced points) to capture the poles and hold them in place in high winds and snow load.
TIP: In winter never camp under trees which can dump their snow on your tent. Rather dangerous.
