When a life depends on your ability to move snow, pulling the Ortovox Professional Alu II Avalanche Shovel from your pack gives you a good chance at a successful rescue. Only part of a complete avalanche rescue system, this lightweight aluminum shovel provides the dimensions and features suited for snow study, guides, or backcountry travelers that take the risk seriously.

  • Lightweight aluminum blade design features a medium-sized scope that slices through ice and moves lots of snow without being too big for your pack
  • Oval aluminum shaft extends for extra leverage against heavy debris and its sanded grip patch and T-handle ensure a solid grip and easy shoveling
  • T-Handle also attaches to the blade, turning it into a hatchet-style shovel for chopping through the hardest ice chunks
  • Lashing holes on the blade let you construct an emergency sled in guiding or rescue situations
  • Shaft packs down to 46cm (18in) and the whole shovel only weighs 720g (1lb 11oz) for easy hauling during any type of backcountry travel
