The Big Agnes Mad House 6 is a free standing, serious basecamp tent that can withstand 4-season weather conditions. This is a solid, heavyweight tent that can cope in mountainous environments in the worst conditions. 

Big Agnes says:

Stronger, more stable, and built to withstand the harshest of conditions, the Mad House series of shelters are much more than standard tents. They are the Everest base camp dining rooms, buttoned up Black Rock City roosts, and Vedauwoo wind refuges. The Mad House series is our biggest mountaineering design. Try one as an all-season, two-room condo with plenty of space to stretch out and relax on acclimation days, or as a place to serve pancakes to the entire summit team.

Big Agnes's Mad House 8 Tent is extremely spacious with plenty of room for 8 people to sleep along with their gear. There's 2 doors for easy access, one with a large vestibule which is great for storing bulky, technical winter gear. The doors feature two closure options; zip up mesh door for ventilation only and or zip up the polyester layer for full protection. As with all Big Agnes tents there are numerous handy storage options and the main area can be divided into two with a simple fabric divider.

This is designed to cope in the harshest conditions and is built for strength rather than concerned with weight. With this in mind It's fairly easy to set up once you've had a little bit of practice but if you're pitching in harsh environments and expecting horrendous conditions it's always worth taking your time.
