Here's what other sites are saying:
Save more energy for busting tricks or setting up camp when you pack along the Expert shovel from Ortovox as it features a huge shovel volume so you can move more snow, faster. Quickly assemble the 2-part T-grip aluminum-telescopic handle to the wide shovel blade and start digging with more efficiency.

Ortovox forged the high volume, aluminum and magnesium alloy blade of the Expert Avalanche shovel for dedicated backcountry travelers who need to move serious amounts of snow at the drop of a dime. Knuckle on to the right or left handed telescoping T handle and send the bombproof durable, yet lightweight 13-inch-wide blade chiseling through concrete thick debris or relocate a massive booter. The square shaped blade and gradual shovel ease valuable pre-drop Ruestch block tests. Divvying out perfectly cubed jump blocks to your crew is always nice, staying alive thanks to a strong, light shovel you don't ditch the truck is even better.
