Two life-saving tools in one shovel.

Aluminum from shaft to shovel blade, the Arva OVO Axe Shovel converts from a standard shovel to a hoe-like tool for chopping through hard avalanche debris and moving snow downhill on steep slopes, which is proven to be faster than traditional shoveling technique. Simply remove the blade from the shaft and click it securely onto the y-shaped handle and you're ready to chop. The unique y-style handle takes stress off your hand so you can dig harder and faster when seconds count, and the handle swaps for left or right-handed users. The scalloped blade is designed to blast through hard and icy snow, has several cutouts that allow for the construction of a rescue sled, and collapses down into an easily-packable size so it won't slow you down when you're on the way up.

  • Aluminum shaft and 2mm anodized aluminum blade
  • Ergonomic y-shaped handle
  • Converts into an axe to chop through hard snow

Broke on first use

Brought this for a hut trip, handle broke while digging first pit. Hoe mode looks like it puts too much stress on plastic handle. Arva does not respond, and was past 30 days guarantee., waste of money.

Great shovel

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This has been my go-to shovel for a couple years. For 2013-14 the shovel handle locking mechanism/handle was re-enforced. Its the small details that make a great shovel and this has it, with a ergonomic handle and shaft that allows for good chopping and shoveling, rigid serrated blade with foot cleats, and it breaks down small and converts to hoe mode as well.
