Soft Top in winter?

I am looking into the purchase of a used Wrangler to keep at our place near Breckenridge. It will be stored outside and I was curious about the durability of the soft top exposed to the elements year-round. Any comments about this would be greatly appreciated. Also, would a cover be appropriate for times when it would be stored for a couple months?
Thanks in advance for any info on this subject.
Chuck

I have had a soft top on my jeep for five years. I have had 2 feet of snow on it. I just swept it off. The windows are brittle when cold, so don't hit them or you will have a hole.

After 14 years on my Jeep it is time to replace mine. Should be fine. As stated above. Don't touch it in the cold. The windows will crack.

This. I put a hole in a window once just by tapping it in very low temps. Other than that it lasted over 7 years...I just put some clear tape over the hole.
