Great ultralight tent

I slept two nights in my Mega Light in mid February in the Wallowas. I left the pole that came with it at home and used one of my Black Diamond Traverse ski poles instead. It worked but even with my pole extended to the max the walls weren't quite taught. I ended up piling snow in the center to raise the pole up which helped but the second night I got 4+" of snow which caused the walls to sag. A ski pole that extends further would have been better. Or I could have brought the center pole that came with the tent. The tent is super light weight and stuffs compact - about the size of a large grapefruit. I also left the stakes at home - instead I used small twigs pushed through the tie down loops, twisted, and then buried in compacted snow.
