Booster Snowboard shovels are for the riders with minimalist tendencies. A single, non-adjustable shaft with a simple T-handle reduces weight while delivering all the necessary leverage. A stout aluminum blade knifes through cement-like avalanche debris. Did we mention it's great for making jumps?
They had this shovel at a resort I went to and they let us use this if we had troubles. I had it in my car when I got stuck and I dug myself out with it. It was okay but for some reason it seemed very cheap.
I got this shovel today for Christmas as a shovel just to keep in my truck under my seat to build jumps and stuff like that. I like that it is collapsable and that it fits under my seat. I was a little mad when I noticed a small crack where the screw on the handle was drilled in too hard, but a little tape will fix that. Other than that I am really happy and look forward to using it
This a cheap shovel, it's fine for having in the back of your car to build jumps or shovel yourself out but it lacks the portability and strength of a good back country shovel. If you are thinking of buying this as an avy shovel don't..... but if you just want a small light shovel for your car/truck it's not bad
I bought this shovel to make jumps on the mountain but changed my mind when I realized it was too big to be practical. Now I just keep this shovel in my car so I can dig it out when the weather gets rough. For the price, it's worth having around. It is not that durable though. It seems very flimsy and only has a small alluminum piece at the end of the shovel instead of having a full alluminum blade like a better quality product would have
