Mammut Alugator Light Avalanche Shovel
The Mammut Alugator Light Avalanche Shovel is Mammut’s lightest. The sharpened, tilt-proof blade is made from super-robust anodized aluminum, while the attachment holes mean it is easier to construct a snow anchor or rescue sled. The telescopic shaft has an oval profile. This makes the Alugator even more robust.
If you have a smaller day-pack and demand the lightest and most compact possible gear, this is the one for you!
Things to consider when buying an avalanche shovel:
- Size – does 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.
