- Tahoe Mountain Sports

Instead of sawing off the end of your toothbrush while you're trying to shed weight, replace that clunky old shovel of yours with the Arva Plume Shovel. A lightweight yet functional shovel, the Plume features a carbon fiber shaft and aluminum blade to provide strength without adding weight. The one-piece shaft clicks easily into the blade so you can start shoveling as fast as possible, and the T-shaped handle assures proper leverage while you dig.
