Voile avalanche shovels receive high marks in European shovel test.




Under the patronage of the Austrian Alpine Club, a recent avalanche shovel test/review was published in the Austrian publication Berg & Steigen and the publication of the Canadian Avalanche Association. In this test, Voile received very favorable results measuring durability and functionality.

The Voile shovels tested were the Telepro-T6, XLM, and new model XLM Pro(Voile's Mini Telepro-T6).

Based on the test, the Telepro-T6 was the clear winner in terms of durability and actual functionality during a mock rescue situation.

This article will be published soon in the American Avalanche Association's publication, The Avalanche Review.
