Shovel is one of extra tools that is crucial for those who go ski touring, freeriding and snow hiking. Ermanno Sport provides the Ortovox models, safe and strong, very light to carry for freeriders.
We also recommend you a probe or an ABS backpack. Check out our Accessories catalog: there is also a Kit dedicated to Off-piste.
Shovel and probe are used in case of avalanche. Help to probe the mass of snow to look for any missing and to dig in case of need. They are indispensable tools: to ensure the survival of those who are overwhelmed by the snow is in fact necessary to pull it out in a matter of minutes. Shovel and probe help at this stage of the rescue.
