A strong and lightweight shovel for your backcountry adventures.
Very few animals instill fear like the badger. This vicious little creature is fast, intense, and utterly relentless. The Ortovox Badger Shovel bears a strong resemblance to its mammal namesake. The all-aluminum construction keeps the shovel light and easy to wield. When speed matters, the hybrid grip and non-slip step grooves on the top of the blade let you shovel snow efficiently and quickly. Made from light though rigid 5052 aluminum, the blade features high side walls and a center ridge for added stability. A centering guide in the shaft socket speeds shovel assembly so you can dig in right away.

Light but strong.

Usually light brings up feelings of weakness. But this hardened aluminum shovel is nails tough and sharp as a knife. When it's in your hand it feels great and feels like it could move a bunch of snow in a hurry. Which is what you want when those precious seconds matter right?
