If you were to raise it up even just a foot off the ground you'd be able to stand straight up no issues and still have a really nice wind/snow break all around IMHO.
I'd be interested to see how this would turn out though.
I have a superfly and love it, but with the winds here in west texas I need something to go all the way to the ground or I will wake up in the morning covered in durt
