The Voile Telepro is a great backcounty workhorse shovel. The compacted length of 18 inches allows for easy stowing on a pack while the extended 32.5 inches gives great leverage for moving lots of snow. The big D handle also makes it easier to use the shovel for extended periods and allows for better control with heavy loads.



The large, tempered aluminum scoop is strong enough to handle hard compacted snow and large enough to move lots of powder. There are also holes in the blade so that it can be used as an emergency deadman anchor.





The lightweight aluminum handle telescopes from 18 inches for storage to 32.5 inches for moving snow.



MADE IN THE USA

This is an awesome shovel that I've used in varied conditions from heavy wet cascade snow to fine powdery Colorado snow.



The D handle is more comfortable than other T handle shovels and makes it easier to use for extended periods of time.



The blade is very durable and makes quick work of compacted snow. The extendable handle gives tons of leverage for prying snow blocks out for building wind blocks.

I got the similar, slightly smaller TelePack T6 Shovel.
Voiles are simple good and solid allround shovels - good weight, very solid, and dig pits really well;
the Telepro should be similar to my TelePack, but larger, and more work-orientated, like my working shovel BD Bobcat.

I choose this metal shovel with a long handle after reading some stories about rescue attempts gone horribly wrong because of inadequate shovels. It's a little heavier than some of the smaller plastic shovels but if I'm using it to dig out a friend I think I'll be glad I brought the best. The handle breaks down and the blade comes off so it's easy to store but quick to assemble in an emergency.

I have beat this shovel for the last 4 years. It still works like new despite all the abuse it gets. (I also use it to shovel snow from the car in the parking lot, and I have even shoveled my sidewalk with it! LOL.
