I have a Tarptent Scarp 2 which is a four season shelter with both an inner tent and an outer fly. This tent is designed to be used with the fly only which then makes for a pretty lightweight tarp shelter. Works well this way for overnighter too.

The key is to pitch a tarp in winter so that snow doesn't accumulate on it or fall from trees onto it. Properly pitched, any good summer tarp will handle winter...up to certain windspeeds, of course...

Fun is where you make it...

I have an Integral Designs Guides Siltarp that has lasted for 10 years without issues, and it gets used about 100 days a year...
