Everything a shovel should be.

When you're looking for durability and simplicity in your backcountry kit, load up the Arva Access Shovel. Aluminum construction keeps it weighing in at under a pound while offering the rigidity you need for chopping through dense debris. It may not be the ideal choice for epic ski mountaineering ascents, but for daily dawn patrols, it'll do just fine.

  • Simple and lightweight shovel for backcountry touring
  • Aluminum construction is light, yet tough and rigid
  • Ovoid blade shape for cutting through dense snow
  • Slots in blade for creating snow anchor or ski stretcher
  • Item #CMA002U

Not much to say or complain about this shovel. Doesn't collapse to be super compact but will still fit in any ski backpack. Sper lightweight and small profile spade, gotta say the color is a little clashy but who cares, really.
