We had six feet of snow last year, with a max of 38 inches at one time. The GIB had no trouble with it. The structure of the frame gives it almost a gambrel roof (think barn), though slightly rounded. As a result, only the central six feet of the roof retains any snow at all -- snow just slides off the steeper outer slope. The color of the material that ISN'T covered with snow is dark, so the GIB heats up on the first sunny day, and all the remaining snow slides right off. I was amazed that on a windless sunny day when the temp outside was five below, the temp inside the GIB was about 50.

This garage in a box original shelters series is very well built and the new alpine roof design sheds snow real well. The manufacturer does not have an actual snow load rating on the garage kit, but I know several friends who live in snow New England states and they say that this shelter is real good at snow load. I have looked at other designs myself in the garage in a box series by the manufacturer shelterlogic originalshelters.com and this particular roof design seems to be the best for snow areas. I would recommend making sure the ratchets are tight at all times to avoid any sagging on the portable garage shelter roof system. This will allow ultimate snow shedding.
