/ Winter overnight outdoors
hope this helps
Disagree with the above. Pick your night and just doss out. You'll need a full weight thermarest, a winter bag and a waterproof cover. A snow shovel is handy for excavating a little depression to keep the wind off.
Makes a difference for tent suggestions.
Lot's of people use single pole tents even in winter, myself included, and never have any issues - if you pitch well and in the right place, most decent tents can cope. A geodesic is stronger but way heavier, how much weight are you happy to carry?
Best tip I can offer - eat well just before you go to sleep and do some star jumps or something before getting into your bag. You'll be warmer for it later.
