A handy tool for everywhere from the backcountry to your driveway, Mammut's Alugator Ride 2. 0 Shovel is a versatile, packable, snow-moving machine. A durable anodized aluminum blade won't give out when it counts, and the oval-shaped telescoping blade is sturdy, used at either length. The shovel can be adjusted to be used for either scooping or cutting, so it makes itself useful in varied situations. The open T-grip handle is easily manipulated using gloves or mittens, so you won't have to deal with the trade-off of dexterity for cold fingers.
