A go-anywhere snow shovel.
The Ortovox Beast Snow Shovel is an all-around dependable shovel for any snow conditions, from powder to solidified chunder. A resilient oval aluminum shaft and blade take on the toughest tasks, and a sanded handle offers a glove-friendly grip. A slightly scooped blade maximizes shoveling capacity and slips easily into your pack. The assembled shovel is small enough to put inside your pack in one piece, and the handle telescopes to a longer length for more efficient digging without sacrificing packability.

- Q & A
Tis A Beast
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I am not nearly adventurous enough to have a bunch of cool stories about how I saved a dozen snowmobilers caught in an avalanche or fended off a hunger polar bear with this shovel. I bought it because of the extended handle for better leverage and it will live most of its life in the trunk of my car. I bought this mainly to dig out my car on the occasion that I get stuck in the snow. The shovel folds down nice and compact. It has saved me from calling a tow truck once and thus paid for itself and the feeling of being self sufficient was icing on the cake.
