Backcountry Access B2 Extendable Shovel
If Goldilocks had to choose a shovel …
Between impractical, spoon-sized shovels and glacier-moving monstrosities, the Backcountry Access B2 Extendable Shovel occupies the the middle ground: enough surface area to be effective during rescues but not too much to carry in a pack. With its seven-inch extension, you get extra leverage for moving heaps of snow quickly during real-life rescues, practice sessions, or while digging your car out in the spring.
- Lightweight aluminum blade slices through icy debris and oval aluminum shaft provides rattle-free rigidity for digging out your companion(s)
- New square, neck-less blade design makes it easier to stow in your backcountry pack
- Avalanche gear benefits you and your party the most after you take an avalanche course and regularly practice your skills
