Voile Mini Shovel
Price Paid: $25
I have a 1990's version of this shovel and have about 18 years in with it. I have thrashed it using it to smash ice, shovel snow, break crust and even move gravel. It's not the lightest, but might be the strongest. This little fellow won't let you down.
Bought the newer version with the longer handle and built in snow saw and was impressed that the 2008 version is just as rugged with a better finish. Great product!
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Mini is the most compact shovel Voile offers and stores conveniently in your backcountry pack. Bigger shovels often hog up space inside your pack or don't even fit in a pack's external shovel pocket at all. The Mini, with its telescoping handle for extended reach and leverage, collapses into a tight little package, 23" tall and 24oz. Why choose a plastic shovel when you can get the strength of metal in the Mini' [Available in red only.]
Taking up little pack space, the Voile Mini Shovel can still move a mountain of snow

The Voile Mini Avalanche Shovel is one tough shovel for its size. The most compact in Voile's shovel line, it is small enough for almost any backpack. The Mini is trimmed down version of the Voile Telepack avalanche shovel.
At only 23 in. long when packed, the Voile Mini Avalanche shovel fits easily in most backpacks. Tempered aluminum scoop is tough enough to handle regular use around camp. Telescoping shaft allows extended reach and easier shoveling; shovel extends to 30 in. long. Holes in the scoop let you use the Voile Mini shovel as an emergency snow anchor or rescue sled when combined with skis.
