Perfect for what it is!!!
I've used this shovel a few times in very different types of snow with the same GREAT result. It's nice and light, and extremely durable. It packs down small enough to carry on your day pack, but has a big enough head to move a good amount of snow. The best two parts of the shovel is the "D" style handle (great for a lot of snow cave/shelter shoveling), and the extendable/retractable shaft. When you need to move a lot of snow for a snow sitting area, make it long... If you need to make a snow cave, in tight areas, shorten it up. It's awesome! Great buy, great price!
