A shovel with a price any skier can dig.
An avalanche shovel is as essential to any backcountry setup as a pair of skis, and since you squandered your bank account on the finest set of skis, you barely have enough for the rest of the kit; lucky for you, Voile's Telepro Shovel balances between avy safety and a ski bum friendly price. Just because this shovel is the least expensive scooper in Voile's collection doesn't mean it's some skimpy spoon. This large, snowplow-like shovel features an extendable handle to enhance efficiency when you're digging, and the tempered scoop yields and impressive tensile strength of 35,000 psi, meaning you won't be able to break it if you tried. The scoop also features slotted holds that help you create an emergency rescue sled or anchor point, though Voile doesn't recommend rapping into crevasses with that method.
