Detailed Description

Aluminum Avalanche Shovel

"Light" no longer means "plastic" for avalanche rescue equipment. In the never-ending quest to save precious ounces and pack a shovel that's strong enough to save a precious life, this Backcountry Acees avalanche shovel features an oval shaft and 6061-series aluminum blade which gives BCA avalanche shovels the greatest strength-to-weight ratio in the backcountry--especially when used in conjunction with our integrated Companion Avalanche Probe.

Why Aluminum? Most avalanche professionals agree that aluminum avalanche shovels are far superior to plastic shovels for avalanche rescue because aluminum cuts better, digs faster and is less likely to break. What's your partner carrying?

Be sure to check out the great selection & prices on all of our Backcountry Access gear including avalanche rescue equipment, avalanche transceivers, beacons & trackers, avalanche probes, mountaineering equipment and more.
