Igloo Building Essential

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I regularly build igloos using the amazing IceBox tool - and this shovel. It's relatively light weight and compactability, along with the long extension handle and flat end blade perform great when building. It can collect and place large amounts of snow quickly and let the digger go for longer periods because they don't have to bend over so far.
I can't speak to its avalanche-assessment or rescue abilities, but every time I need to build an igloo, this shovel's going in the pack.
