Mother nature is an unpredictable beast. If unfortunately you are caught in a mountain avalanche, a rescue shovel should be fast and easy to use once the buried person has been located using the transceiver and probe. K2
have shovels made out of sturdy but light-weight aluminium and thats easy to grip with those cold winter hands (or cumbersome mitten hands). It dismantles easily to make it portable. The K2 Rescue Shovel
also doubles as an emergency sled!
Snowboard and ski shovels can actually come in very useful for other situations too…digging out your car, clearing paths, shovelling out of your house to go and get milk from the shop?! And of course, making snowboard kickers. A very useful piece of safety equipment to take on any snowy adventure.
