yurts and snow

Will the snow slide off the roof or will we need to shovel it?

Will the snow slide off the roof or will we need to shovel it?

We wondered about over wintering with the yurt.

How will the yurt support the weight of snow?

At what angle should we make the roof in order to facilitate snow removal?

My mom wondered if we needed an inside pole to support the crown wheel in case heavy snow accumulated.

Well its winter now and we know a few things.

A winter picture will follow soon.

And here is is…

yurt tarp roof, snow

December 2013, the snow slides off easily this yurt tarp roof

The snow slides off the roof tarp It dislodges and slides right off making a loud scratching avalanche sound from inside the yurt. So far we’ve removed snow once with a long shovel. Perhaps the 22 degree angle roof is steep enough.  We do not need a crown wheel support.

I wonder do other yurters with tarp roofs in snow bearing regions also experience this phenomena?
