The Voilé Telepro M Avalanche Shovel includes everything you'll find on the full-size version, but in a smaller package.
The extended telescoping handle adds efficiency and reduces strain on your lower back. Once collapsed, the handle removes easily from the scoop and stows conveniently in a pack for travel or making joyous turns downhill.
But the accolades of the Telepro don’t stop there. First, its large scoop is cold forged to its quintessential Voilé shape from 6061 aluminum. Then the scoop is heat-treated to an impressive T6 temper.
T6-tempered 6061 aluminum has an ultimate tensile strength of 42,000 psi and yield strength of 35,000 psi. So what does all that mean? Let’s just say the end result is a scoop that rivals the strength and rigidity of a heavy, steel scoop you might find on a transfer shovel from a hardware store.
The shovel scoop of the Telepro M Avalanche Shovel features a pair of slotted holes. In the deft hands of a snow expert, these “deadman” holes may used to fashion an emergency rescue sled or snow anchor. (Please don’t rap off the latter into a deep crevasse.)
The Telepro is truly a professional-level avalanche shovel at a price that anybody can dig.
We dug out our car and helped two other people dig out theirs with this shovel. It cuts through icy crust and is good for tight spots underneath the car, behind the tires. The shovel is sturdy and holds a lot of snow for a small shovel.

D handel is king!
The D handel is where its at. If you plan on using your shovel at all this is the one to get! Light enough you dont notice it in the pack and the d handle gives you the leverage you need.
