If space is at a premium, the Ortovox Beast Snow Shovel is your answer. Smaller, with less scoop volume than the Ortovox Kodiak Snow Shovel, the Beast holds its own on strength. In fact, it is so strong, you can step on its scoop to push it down through hard snow. The t-grip’s ergonomic handle holds fatigue at bay and the smaller scooping size is easier on your back. The aptly named Ortovox Beast Snow Shovel is a must-have on trips where compact dimensions and 100% reliability are not an option.
