check it out: http://www.msrcorp.com/tents/velo.asp
It's four season in that it is good for most weather conditions, zips up tight, weather resistant venting etc., can probably stand a six inch snow or some moderate wind.
It is not a full expedition tent, which would be ment to stand a blizzard on a mountain side.

Those are MSRs categories, REI(who sells quite a bit of MSR, including the Velo) would call the former a more of a three season mountaineering tent and the expedition would be called a four season mountaineering tent.http://www.rei.com/online/store/Lear...*How_to_Choose
