    As an avalanche professional I dig a lot of snow. I have done some pretty terrible things to this shovel and have never broken one. The shovel blade isn’t too big to wear me out after a big day of digging yet it is big enough to move some serious snow. It makes great pit walls as well.

  2. Weston Deutschlander

    Old trusty never lets me down. So light, so strong and moves snow like nothing else. I get great pit walls out of it as well. Its just a shovel, but its a damn good one.
