ZQ here. If the tarp will be used in a snow storm...keep in mind that there might be a shelf of sorts created when the snow lays on the top sides of the tarp. That is why we put the poles inside. 2Q has been in several snow storms...one with 18" falling overnight. His tarp with the inside poles worked great to keep the snow from weighing down the tarp. He just needed to tap on the inside walls every so often, and the snow slid off.
