Just saw this new backcountry shovel called The Kicker Tool by DMOS. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/576463145/the-kicker-tool-build-better-jumps/description
Definitely something that I want to back and you should too as I feel it will be so nice to have a shovel in the backcountry that is specifically designed for building jumps and is also so portable. This little beast has an integrated rake and is 56 inches long. The whole shovel can be completely taken apart and be put into most backpacks. Cant wait for the release!
