Inspired by athletes’ spirit of adventure, Austria’s Komperdell has been making ski poles and other alpine gear since 1922. This is the company’s Avalanche line of snow shovels: great for making a snow kitchen or a snow shelter like an igloo or snow cave, or for keeping on hand as part of an avalanche safety kit. Each is comprised of an adjustable shaft made of aluminum and a shovel pan. The Alloy is the larger of the two, with a nearly-10-inch-wide shovel and a maximum length of 39 inches, while the Expedition has a 8.5-inch-wide shovel and a 34.6-inch maximum length. Both pack down to 19.7 inches for convenient carry.
Note: This drop’s base price is for the Avalanche Expedition shovel in your choice of color: blue, orange, or red. At checkout, you can opt for the Avalanche Alloy shovel (+ $8).
