    I do not use any props in the winter when I overwinter my test hives. I even put slider covers in my SBB to keep out drafts and any blowing snow.

    are you worried about the bottom getting blocked up over the winter?,i like using an inrie shim above the inner cover for a winter exit and air flow.

    If you have an upper enternce already, then don't bother with propping up thelid.

    As Ian says, the upper entrance will let the moisture out.
