YES. Do you live in a snow belt or perhaps in a rainy zone? Climate can make a difference when choosing the right hot tub cover. Generally speaking the colder the climate, the more protection the hot tub will need. The denser the foam, and thicker the cover, the better protection against the elements.
For example, if you live is a part of Canada that gets lots of snow, we would recommend The 4-Season with a 2lb. Foam Density upgrade. The 4-Season is our thickest cover with a 6″ to 4″ foam taper. The 2lb. Foam Density upgrade (also know as a walk-on option) will allow for extra weight.
