Extremely lightweight, compact and functional: The Ortovox Pro Light Shovel is the perfect companion for all ski tourers who want to be lightweight on the go, but place high demands on their equipment!
Ortovox used innovative materials, modern production processes and carefully considered notches in the shovel blade to create a lightweight avalanche shovel that weighs in at only 440g – without compromising on rigidity. For the shaft of the shovel Ortovox used high-quality 7075 T6 aluminum that is both very light and extremely strong. For the blade we used the 6061 T6 aluminum. Thanks to the telescopic, rapid-closure shaft, our lightweight avalanche shovel can be quickly adjusted. And its practical switchover function makes it suitable for both left and right-handers.
The pack-friendly blade on the Ortovox Pro Light Shovel has step grooves to stop your foot slipping when digging. A sharp, sturdy cutting edge guarantees optimum performance. High sidewalls and a pronounced center ridge on the blade provide the necessary rigidity.
Thanks to notches in the material, the Ortovox Pro Light Shovel is not only lighter but also suitable for building a rescue sled or for use as a snow anchor. It is also compatible with the PRO ALU III shaft and fits in all ORTOVOX backpacks.
The Ortovox Pro Light Shovel is the perfect companion for light sheep on ski tours, because with less weight on his back he can use all of his energy for great adventures in the snow.

What to think about when making the most important shovel decision of your life:
Size - do the shaft and blade fit in your pack? (note: the bigger the shaft and blade - the more effective the shovel is).
- Weight - is it light enough to carry if you're ski touring?
Durability - will it stand up to the rigors of digging through avalanche debris? (note: more durable shovels are inevitably heavier!)
- Grip: D-grip vs. T-Grip - D-Grips are more ergonomic and will make you a better shovel, but are heavier than a T-Grip.
