An ideal lightweight backcountry accessory for space-saving efficiency

The new BCA Shaxe Speed shovel/ice axe is Back Country Access’s lightest combo product for ski mountaineering. This rescue shovel comes with an interchangeable ice axe head for Type 1 (Basic) ice axes. This saves weight and space in your pack by eliminating redundant shaft for separate ice axe.

Shovel and axe mode

This shovel is a great addition to your spring/summer skiing arsenal. The shovel is still operational when switched to axe mode. It includes hardware to utilise the blade and shaft to make a rescue sled with K2 skis (or any skis with holes in tip and tail). The smooth blade allows for shaving down clean snow pit walls and contains holes for use as a snow anchor.

The best bits…

  • Lightweight snow safety accessory
  • Interchangeable ice axe head
