Good Rando Shovel
I use this shovel for skimo races. It is as lightweight of an avalanche shovel as you can find, which is why I use it racing. It packs down super small and I hardly notice it in my pack. When I am actually touring in the backcountry I use a full metal shovel as it provides more peace of mind should I actually have to dig through avalanche debris. This shovel is sturdy for being plastic. I highly recommend this if you race and are looking for something lightweight.
