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 Plus 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. The K2
Rescue Shovel Plus includes the necessary hardware to construct a rescue sled using your skis, poles, shovel handle and blade (fits skis with K2
’s proprietary tip and tail hardware).
