BUYER'S GUIDE

Note - though this shovel is super well-made, sturdy and a great price, it's not extendable. It's a good size, but this is the one main feature this shovel lacks. 

  • 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.
