A must have if you are using an Avalanche beacon - the beacon will only help you
find a victim, but a shovel and probe are vital to getting him out alive.
The B1 Shovel:
World's lightest avalanche shovel now with the strongest blade on the market.
The B-1 shovel is the lightest and most compact shovel of the Bomber series. Compatible
with the 180cm B-1 Probe that is storable inside the shaft, the B-1 shovel provides
a lightweight option to serve all your backcountry skiiing and snowboarding needs.
The 6061 aluminum BCA Bomber shovels feature an oval shaft with a more packable,
bombproof, "ferrule-less" blade, ergonomic grip, and T6 heat treatment. The 2012/2013
Bomber Shovels now feature an end cap on the shaft, which prevents snow from building
up along the inside. The Bomber line boasts an off-the-chart strength to weight ratio,
while taking up minimal storage space in your pack. Remember, the excavation process
in an avalanche rescue is where the most time can be lost or gained.
