The structure will withstand light to moderate snow loading.
Are there any additional pullout points for extra staking?

How does the Bowfin 1 compare to the Moment DW?
Both models are arch pole supported and full double wall, double side entry. On the Moment DW, the arch pole runs across the entrances whereas it runs end to end on the Bowfin 1. The Bowfin 1 structure is free-standing whereas the Moment DW structure requires two stakes but can be free-standing with the optional crossing pole. The Bowfin 1 interior is wider through the middle at ground level and narrower at the apex. The Bowfin 1 structure is stronger in wind and better able to handle a light to medium snowfall. The Moment DW crossing ounces ( 7 oz/ 198g) adds snowloading support.
Will this shelter fit a long/wide pad?
The Bowfin 1 will fit one long/wide sleeping pad (76 in x 25 in / 193 cm x 64 cm). Check out the photos above to see it in action.
Is the Bowfin 1 suitable for tall folks?
The Bowfin 1 has been tested by folks as tall as 6 ft 4 in / 1.93 m.
Is the Bowfin 1 freestanding?
Once you assemble the structure of the Bowfin 1, you can pick it up and move it around without disassembling. In order to take advantage of the full floor width, the vestibules must be staked. A rock, water bottle, or boot can be used just as easily as a stake.
