The Ortovox Badger Shovel is a lightweight (1 lb, 6 oz/625 g), ergonomic option for mountaineering, winter explorations, or avalanche rescues. The aggressive, 2.5 liter-volume shovel is constructed of durable, powder-coated 5052 aluminum. High side walls and a tall center ridge maximize strength. Non-slip step grooves enable you to confidently drive the shovel with boot soles.
