The Alugator Light is Mammut's lightest avalanche shovel. It weighs less than a small cola and can fit into any small daypack. The sharpened, tiltproof blade is made from super-robust anodized aluminum, while the attachment holes mean it is easier to construct a snow anchor or rescue sled. The telescopic shaft has an oval profile. This makes the Alugator even more robust.

Mammut made the Alugator Light Shovel for backcountry skiers and snowboarders who want to shave every possible ounce from their kit without losing function. ItaTMs nice to take a 21. 2oz shovel into the hills, but you donaTMt want to give up your ability to save your friend. Aluminum construction helps you cut through tough avalanche debris when it really counts. Mammut also included an extendable handle to give you better leverage for digging test pits.
Built tough for day-to-day tours and backcountry rescue, the Mammut Alugator Light snow shovel won't weigh you down. Collapsing to 37cm, it's compact enough to fit in a smaller freeride pack.
