From the Editors of Freeskier:

Made of anodized aluminum, the blade of this shovel has two ribs for rigidity and six small cutouts that contribute to its low weight of just under a pound and a half. The two-piece, telescoping shaft is also aluminum and culminates in a simple T-shaped handle.

The Pros: Simple, affordable.
The Cons: Shovel blade is on the small side.
