BCA RS+ Shovel

BCA RS+ Shovel

The RS EXT avalanche shovel is a lightweight extendable shovel for skiers and snowboarders looking to minimize on weight without sacrificing any of the practical ergonomic considerations of an extendable handle.

The blade can be reattached at a 90 degree angle to convert the shovel into hoe mode. This configuration creates the ultimate tool for “strategic shoveling” and digging out stuck snowmobiles. The BCA avalanche rescue shovel line boasts an off-the-chart strength to weight ratio, while taking up minimal storage space in your pack.

Both handle and shaft are made of T6 treated aluminium, to ensure that the RS+ is durable and hard-wearing. The blade has raised sides, and has holes in it for use as a snow anchor.

Remember, the excavation process in an avalanche rescue is where the most time can be lost or gained.
