Don't have specific model recommendations, there are so many, but will caution that big tents become harder to find a spot for the higher into the Sierra you go, because the flat spots seem to shrink with altitude. Down lower in the woods it's usually not as much of a challenge. When evaluating the pitched area look at the guylines you may need, especially for the fly. If there's no soil for staking, you can tie off to a bush or create a deadman, but that all takes time. Simpler designs usually have fewer guylines and total stakes.

Happy shopping,
