The B-1 EXT avalanche shovel is both light and extendable for weight conscious skiers and snowboarders that prefer the comfort and functionality of an extendable shovel. The Bomber line boasts an off-the-chart strength to weight ratio, while taking up minimal storage space in your pack. Remember, the excavation process in an avalanche rescue is where the most time can be lost or gained.
B-1 EXT Avalanche Shovel Features
The 6061 aluminum BCA Bomber shovels feature an oval shaft with a more packable, bombproof, “ferrule-less” blade, ergonomic grip, and T6 heat treatment.
Includes an end cap on the shaft, which prevents snow from building up along the inside.

Easy on, easy off! These 65% mohair/35% nylon climbing skins with Contour Hybrid construction require minimal effort to pull apart and remove from the ski-and they stay on after repeated laps in cold weather.
Our BCA Hybrid climbing skins check all the boxes – good grip, good glide, easy to trim, easy to stash, and hybrid glue that works in a variety of conditions. Most of all, they pull apart easily. No regluing necessary: just wipe down the adhesive layer to restore tackiness. Includes flush metal top loop and adjustable tail hook, cleaning wipes, stuff sack, and easy-to-use offset trim tool to fit these skins to your sidecut.
How to Choose Skins Width When selecting the skin’s width, you must look up your ski’s dimensions. The idea is to pick a skin width that’s a few millimeters less than or any amount more than the widest part of your ski (generally near the tip). If the widest part of your ski is 130mm you could pick a 130mm or wider climbing skin. To save weight and cost, consider a skin width greater than or equal to ski waist width.
