A basic-yet-advanced aluminum shovel that won’t weigh you down. The Mammut Alugator Light features an anodized blade and telescopic shaft for some serious digging. The automatic zipper-lock system allows for quick assembly and deployment. The blade has stabilization ribs for rigidity, yet the back remains flat, which helps when cutting a snow profile. There are also strategically placed holes which cut weight and double as attachments points for building a sled or anchor. Best of all, the shovel is lightweight and the blade has a space-saving design that sits relatively flat in your pack. The Alugator Light is a great starter and finisher shovel for beginners and experts alike.
