Backcountry Access Shaxe Tech Shovel Backcountry Access Shaxe Tech Shovel
Backcountry Access' Shaxe Tech Shovel is a versatile tool for both ski mountaineering missions and powder touring. BCA designed the Shaxe to eliminate extra materials (and weight) from your touring pack by enabling the shaft to double as both a handle for a shovel and ice axe. The sturdy aluminum shaft can be equipped with either a shovel or stainless steel pick (both are included), and it can be used to build a rescue sled with any pair of skis that have skin holes in the tip, thanks to the included wing nuts and bolts (also included). The shovel blade is serrated to cut through solidified avy debris, and it is slotted so it can be used as a snow anchor when ski mountaineering--although, it's not recommended to go rapping into a crevasse off it. The type 1 ice axe is suitable for general mountaineering (self-arresting and cutting steps) and has nine degrees of pick angle for a better feel when climbing steep slopes.

Backcountry x G3 Shovel Backcountry x G3 Shovel
Avalanche pros know what's up when it comes to gear, and for years they've been using, abusing, and trusting the G3 AviTech shovel for snow study pits, avalanche rescue, and the occasional backcountry booter. Built with a flat aluminum blade, this shovel is perfect for digging out smooth pit walls or chopping through debris, and it has several slots designed to facilitate building a rescue sled. The aluminum shaft is tough and durable, but a blast of adrenaline can kick you into overdrive in emergency situations, leading to a snapped shovel--to remedy this, G3 designed the telescoping shaft in two parts, allowing you simply remove the broken section and continue digging. This edition has been styled out with the Backcountry. com logo, helping it stand out whether you're scooping out a kitchen on Denali or digging practice pits in your backyard.
