Weighing Down Your Canopies
The first question, is how are you going to weigh down your canopies? If you are on pavement, its an easy one. Your sand bags or concrete weights you used all summer are good to go! These can be used on hard snow surfaces as well. The real challenge is, how are you going to stake your tent down when setting up on snow? Your usual tent pegs won’t work as even the slightest wind will take them out and next thing you know your canopy is airborne! Which will wreck your tent you invested in to promote your brand as well as cause a safety hazard for the people at your event.
The best solution to this are what we call “snow cookies”. As shown in the photo below, they are a disk with a rope and loop to fasten your canopy to. The disk is buried about a foot under the snow and then iced into place. This method makes it as if each leg had hundreds of pounds of weight tying it down.
Inflatables for Winter
Another thing to think about for winter events are inflatables! Have you ever set up your entire steel/aluminum frame pole tent then got asked to move it a few metres over? Well, it’s a pain. As the structure usually has to be taken down and rebuilt. With inflatables one person can easily push the entire set up across the snow.
