The Voile Telepro Avalanche Shovel is a superb snow shovel that is both lightweight and far-reaching. With an extended length of 100 cm and a total weight of 850 g, it is the choice of avalanche professionals, guides, patrollers, and rescue teams worldwide.
The Woodlore team have searched far and wide for the right snow shovel, using our first-hand experience to choose the right model, and the Avalanche fits the bill. It comes highly recommended for those attending one of our Winter Expeditions
, and will make light work of ice fishing preparation and shelter building. It is equally suitable for keeping in your vehicle or home during the winter.
While many other shovels are so short that they cause back pain after anything more than brief usage, the extended length of the Avalanche allows you to work ache-free for long periods of time. The extended telescoping handle adds efficiency and once collapsed, the handle removes easily from the scoop and stows conveniently in a pack for travel or making joyous turns downhill.
Another feature that is so often missing in show shovels today is a decent handle. The Avalanche overcomes this and employs a heavy-duty D-grip handle, allowing comfortable use with both gloves and mittens. Meanwhile, the shovel scoop features 'deadman' holes, allowing it to be used as a snow anchor, or for making an emergency rescue sled.
