The poles are made of STEEL. Very durable, but remember... Steel RUSTS, which will weaken to the point of fatigue failure over time if the metal is lying in the dirt, pooling water, snow, etc.
Use your noggin... Place some (3 or 4) pressure treated 2"x8"x10' on the ground and build upon them.
Protect your investment and READ the manual until you understand every step of the installation.

all bars go to go together then when you put tarps on and tighten straps it seems sturdy for wind for sure i wouldnt let any amount of snow build up on it !

The poles are fairly high-quality. Mine has lasted a year so far and nothing has bent or twisted yet. One thing you should know though is that the anchors that you drill into the ground are really cheap. When attempting to drill them into a sort of rough area of ground, I could only get them halfway in. When I tried using leverage to apply more force, one of them broke right in half. I ended up purchasing some of those things people put in the ground to tie their dog to and they went in with minimal difficulty.
