At just 16.4 ounces, the Komperdell Avalanche Carbon Shovel is the lightest on the market. It is also highly versatile featuring a full-size blade, foam grip, an extendable shaft, left or right hand grip, and an innovative hoe position for scraping. In soft snow, it even passes as an ice axe in a pinch. At $159.95 it is also the most expensive shovel on the market. So, is it worth all that gold for this piece of carbon?
