The telescopic shaft has an oval profile to make the Alugator even more robust.
Symmetrical T-Grip for optimum transfer of force.
This shovel has been optimised to a more compact size. The Mammut Alugator Light Shovel will fit within the Mammut Nirvana Backpacks.
How to Shovel Correctly
After reading the depth of the victim using the snow probe move downhill.
Start digging a trench into the snow towards the victim.
The trench should be of the same length as the depth of the victim.
This is to allow space to clear previously dug snow.
If multiple shovelers are available then one person should be digging down at the point of the probe and the other people or person should be clearing snow out of the trench to allow room.
These roles should be rotated to keep shovelers fresh.
