Product Info

Every one of your touring partners will tell you the same thing: don't skimp on your shovel! A stout metal-bladed shovel in the hands of a trained rescuer might prove to be their best friend someday. The K2 Rescue Shovel is solidly made of 7075 Aluminum Alloy and has slots in the blade to allow its use as a Deadman Anchor. The modified “L” handle let you use the shovel as a hoe to drag snow away from a burial, sometimes the most efficient way of moving it.

    I just bought this in the summer so I haven't got a chance to use it. I been playing with it non-stop and it is awesome. I can't wait to use it next season.

            Bought this during the '12-'13 season. Looks great and Very easy to assemble, which is important in stressful situations (i.e. avalanches).

            Wish I would have held out for the k2 Shaxe (ice axe/ shovel) k2 is releasing next season, but I'm sure that one will come with a higher price point.

            Great Shovel, little bit heavier side but only by grams and way more solid. Great Shovel happy to have purchased it though it was a little on the expensive side

              • Moving Snow Quickly

              Comments about K2 Rescue Shovel:

              Handle/shaft collapses even more when separated from blade so it fits inside smaller packs.
              No extended ferule on the blade.
              Handle/shaft is plugged at the bottom so snow doesn't get packed inside.
              Hoe mode really does work for moving lots of snow fast.
