Canopies are free standing fabric structures which require an understanding of foundations. Make sure you have a good foundation person on the job and that proper anchors are installed. Canopies come in all shapes and sizes and it must be engineered for your local building code. It is possible to have a canopy designed to have the membrane removed easily in the event of bad weather. Some canopies are designed with "soft" sidewalls but they also can be designed with "Hard" walls such as glass or poly-carbonate.
Custom canopies can be designed for snow too. Why get a standard off the shelf canopy when you can go custom.
