For times when a snow professional is less concerned with moving snow for routine chores or not specifically recruited for a rescue operation, the Voile Telepack Mini Avalanche Shovel is an excellent alternative to the Telepro shovel. Fitted with the same, bomber scoop as the Telepro, the Telepack features a slightly-shorter, T-handle (rather than a D-grip) for compact stowage inside a pack.
