TerraWest Core Plus Shovel and 240 Quick Lock Probe
Be winter ready with the NEW and IMPROVED Terrawest Core Plus Avalanche Shovel & Terrawest Core Quick Lock 240 cm Avalanche Probe
The TerraWest Core Plus Shovel offers 3 things every good avalanche shovel should have, Its Light Weight, Its Pack-Friendly and it offers high durability in tough conditions.
Shovel Composition: For the blade of the shovel, Terrawest used a high-end heat treated 5052 Aluminium that offers a weight-to-strength ratio and has non slip grooves to stop you from slipping when digging. For the Telescopic Stem, a 6061 Aluminium, this allows you to quickly make adjustments to the shaft and is very pack friendly.
Long Centre Column on the Aluminium blade makes it snap free and durable when shovelling in tough icy conditions.
Rescue Sled function, the blade includes holes which you can use as a rescue sled in an emergency situation transporting an injured victim down the slopes.
Telescopic function also means that the shovel can be used at full length, for maximum power, or at a shorter length for the greatest possible efficiency of movement in tighter spaces.
Ergonomic T-Style grip offers a non-slip plastic material so digging is easier when wearing ski gloves.
The Probe: The TerraWest Core Quick Lock 240 Probe, built with TerraWest's Safety, Practicality and Innovation guidelines, this 240 cm probe is incredibly fast to deploy and is made for weight-conscious outdoor enthusiasts, weighing just 240 g.

Prominent Depth Markers have been used within this probe to determine burial depth and which shovel method you use.
A Large Probe Tip has been added so you can easily cut through avalanche snow slabs and ice.
