Ortovox Kodiak Shovel


See available avalanche shovels


Tough as its namesake bear, the Kodiak has a big scoop for moving lots of snow in a hurry. The blade also mounts at right angles to the shaft to make an adze that excels at tunnelling and excavating snow caves.

  • Can be used as a shovel or at a 90° angle for maximum snow clearing
  • Made of hardened and anodized aluminum for lightness and durability
  • D-grip is more compact and features a rubberized grip zone
  • Oval shaft improves stiffness and makes locking the shaft in extended position easy
  • Rubberized grip zone on the shaft makes it non-slip
  • High sidewalls and pronounced centre ridge makes for a very stiff blade
