The packs include a shovel with either a plastic or a metal spade of either the Voile or Ortovox range.
The Alaska Shovel is specially made by Ortovox (Europe) for an American market that demands a high quality, super strong shovel blade for avalanche rescue. Equipped with a 6000 aluminum blade and slip-resistant T handle, this is an economical shovel that will get the job done in your hour of need. Two holes in the blade and one through the T handle allow you to string up to 6mm cord for slinging the shovel. Not too teched out, but far superior to shovels with lexan and plastic blades.
The Voile Shovel features a T grip handle that is easy to get your hands on and makes for easier packing than D-grip handles. It also has a telescoping shaft that collapses to 27 inches and extends to 35 ¼ inches. The Voile Telepack shovel is perfect for snow study, building kickers or to digging your car out if need be
