Black Diamond Transfer 3 Snow Shovel


This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • The durable, high-volume blade and extendable shaft provide the snow-moving performance you need in any backcountry situation
  • Shaft deploys quickly via a quick squeeze of spring pins; shaft shape prevents rotation for positive engagement of spring pins every time
  • Ergonomic T-grip handle feels like a D-grip but packs small and is glove- and mitten-friendly
  • Sturdy anodized 6000-series aluminum blade has a smooth and flat shape that carves quickly through snow during recovery and cuts clean during pit analysis
  • Pointed blade enables more effective chopping and flat sides help in smoothing pit walls; anchor holes through blade allow use as a dead man anchor
  • Black Diamond Transfer 3 shovel weighs 650g (1 lb. 7 oz.)
