This aluminum blade is lighter than most lexan blades - amazing! Very solid construction.
For digging snow shelters or avy pits etc. it works great. However, the surface area is a bit small for moving snow fast (read: avalanche). That's a tradeoff you have to make. But another plus of that is shoveling with it doesn't break your back!
The little button on the handle that allows it to become a hoe is a very useful little touch for campsite/shelter building.
Also, I would recommend drilling some holes in it so you can make a deadman out of it.
