Good Rando Shovel
I use this shovel for skimo races. It is as lightweight of an avalanche shovel as you can find, which is why I use it racing. It packs down super small and I hardly notice it in my pack. When I am actually touring in the backcountry I use a full metal shovel as it provides more peace of mind should I actually have to dig through avalanche debris. This shovel is sturdy for being plastic. I highly recommend this if you race and are looking for something lightweight.
Has anyone tried using this in actual avalanche debris? does it crack easily? does it penetrate the snow as easily?
