The D2 Extended Hoe Avalanche Shovel is the tool you want most for moving lots of snow quickly. Whether digging a snow cave, building a jump, or excavating a snowmobile, the D-2 is up to the task. For versatility the hoe can easily be changed into a regular shovel, and the slip-proof grips on the shaft and blade help you get a good hold to get the job done. This shovel is extremely lightweight, made from 6061 aluminum, and has the strength of a heavy duty shovel. The extendable handle makes the shovel more compact to take up less space in your pack. It also has an oval shaft, ergonomic grip, T6 heat treatment, and an end cap on the shaft to prevent snow build up.
