BCA B-1 EXT Avalanche Shovel 2024

The predecessor of our Dozer 1T, this is our longstanding bestseller, with extendable oval shaft, T-grip, and strong, low profile blade.


The B-1 EXT avalanche shovel is both light and extendable for weight conscious skiers and snowboarders that prefer the comfort and functionality of an extendable shovel. The Bomber line boasts an off-the-chart strength to weight ratio, while taking up minimal storage space in your pack. Remember, the excavation process in an avalanche rescue is where the most time can be lost or gained.

B-1 EXT Avalanche Shovel Features

  • The 6061 aluminum BCA Bomber shovels feature an oval shaft with a more packable, bombproof, “ferrule-less” blade, ergonomic grip, and T6 heat treatment.
  • Includes an end cap on the shaft, which prevents snow from building up along the inside.

*As of the end of the 21/22 season, we have discontinued the B-1 and B-2 shovels. The Dozer 1T is the most similar to the specs of the B-1 shovel.*
