On the shovel itself it has two holes, one on each side of the shovel. I am wondering what these are for. I could imagine they could be used to fasten the shovel to a backpack, etc. For example, picture the letter U, where U is the shovel. At the top of each side of the U there is a hole. What is this for? Actually, you can see the holes on the picture above.

The holes are for making it a snow anchor, or for making a rescue sled. But if you want you can strap it to your pack.-----------------It can also be used to make an ultra-light shovel sling to carry it without a backpack.
