Although not considered the most complex piece of gear, avalanche shovels are an essential piece of every backcountry safety kit.
Compactable backcountry shovels are brilliantly versatile pieces of off-piste equipment. Whether you're building a kicker, digging out a shelter or involved in an avalanche rescue, their metal blade is the most efficient tool for clearing snow fast.
At Ellis Brigham, we sell avalanche shovels with a range of different handles including those with D handles, T handles and ones with a hybrid of both, each with their own benefits.
Select from our range avalanche shovels from leading brands such as Ortovox and many more.
