I owned my share of floorless tents for winter camping, BD megamid, and Golite Hex 3, and MSR E-House. The BD and the Golite work great for winter base camping.
But lately, I have gone back to the Brooks Range ultralight tents 1st the Rocket Tent and now the Propel 2D (a little more room) w/ two vestibules. I went with these tents as I need an ultralight mountaineering tent that was easy to setup in unconsolidated snow here in Colorado. Easy enough for the wife to setup by herself in an emergency situation.
Note the Rocket tent is on ebay starting is $275 dollars.
Also if I was going to look for into a floorless mountaineering tent again I would look into the MSR Twin Sister (two person) and MSR Twin Brothers (four - six person) as these tents come with a perimeter snow skirt. Something other floorless tents do not have.
Two-Doors: Rear door makes access twice as easy and increases ventilation. Full-protection: Steep roof, perimeter snow skirt and DuraShield™ coatings help seal out the elements in any season. Easy Set-Up: Pitches quickly with included poles or with trekking poles for added efficiency. Additional Features: (2) external peak vents, guy loops for pole-free set-up, reinforced guy points, easy, six-point pitch
