ARVA Mini Ovo Light Shovel ARVA Mini Ovo Light Shovel
Bigger can be better, but not if it means you have to carry more weight on your back during a long day on Mont Blanc. The Arva Mini Ovo Light Shovel isn't a teensy-weensie ballerina, but it is smaller and more packable than most shovels on the market. It also has a rough-and-tough aluminum shaft, a 1. 5mm-thick aluminum blade, and an ergonomic L-shaped handle to make digging easier whether you're sculpting the back wall of a snow pit or chopping through avalanche debris.

ARVA OVO Axe Shovel ARVA OVO Axe Shovel
Aluminum from shaft to shovel blade, the Arva OVO Axe Shovel converts from a standard shovel to a hoe-like tool for chopping through hard avalanche debris and quickly moving snow downhill on steep slopes, which is proven to be a faster and more energy efficient way of digging. Simply remove the blade from the shaft and click it securely onto the Y-shaped handle and you're ready to chop. The unique Y-style handle takes stress off your hand so you can dig harder and faster when every second counts, and the handle swaps for left or right-handed users. The serrated blade is designed to blast through hard and icy snow, has several cutouts that allow for the construction of a rescue sled, and collapses down into an easily-packable size so it won't slow you down when you're on the way up.
