Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

The MSR Operator Snow Shovel is a backcountry shovel for basecamps and snow pits. The D-handle version of the shovel comes in at 1lb, 10oz (the T-handle is 1lb, 8oz), allowing you to pack it while still get great digging power out of the telescoping handle. The high sides combine with a serrated edge to drive in and scoop more, whether you're constructing or on a rescue mission. Building a snow shelter in the backcountry is so much more satisfying than digging out your car in the mornings before work.

FINAL SALE: For safety reasons, we cannot accept returns on load-bearing climbing equipment. Sorry for being so mean.

FEATURES of the MSR Operator Snow Shovel

  • Aggressive: Blade's traditional flat chopping face delivers a stable strike, while its serrated leading edge breaks up snow and ice
  • Fast Deployment: Two-section, non-rotational telescoping shaft and fast lockpin provide rapid, hassle-free deployment
  • Ergonomic: Meticulously engineered handles optimize comfort, control and leverage with all glove types to minimize hand fatigue
  • Versatile: Shaft's upper section fits equally well into the blade, allowing you to choose the shovel length you need. Blade's flat back shaves smooth snow pit walls or offers a platform for stoves
  • Strong: 6061-T6 hard-anodized, lightweight aluminum with TIG-welded blade/shaft interface, and neckless blade design for maximum durability
  • Unrelenting strength combines with smart ergonomics to help you dig with greater force and less fatigue when speed counts in a rescue

Product Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Shovel....but.... I purchased 2 -- one shovel works great, however, the second shovel broke after the first use. I have emailed customer service and warranty at-least 4 times over the past year without a response.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Workhorse Shovel I picked this up to use for backcountry ski patrolling. So far, it seems like a really decent, durable piece of equipment. I like the attachment points on the blade. While I have not yet used it to construct a rescue sled, I can certainly envision it being very functional in this application. Like most things MSR, it is bright red and would be difficult to lose. I wish it had a hoe-mode, however the angle on the blade is a bit sharper than other shovels so it may not even be necessary. On the down side, it may not be ergonomically ideal for shovel tests in snow pits. Finally, the shaft seems quite durable and is adequately long when extended. It is essentially triangular with rounded edges. It could potentially be put into the blade at the wrong angle (rotated 120 degrees) which may cost precious extra seconds in an emergency, however I suppose this seems unlikely. Overall, I see this as a highly functional shovel for the price and I would certainly recommend it to others.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well designed but handle freezes stuck I've used a half dozen shovels from various manufacturers and this one checks many boxes for me: adequate shaft length, well proportioned blade, strong weld, d-handle, non-round shaft for easy deploy. BUT: I have had repeated problems with the shaft freezing short, or ice on the bottom of shaft preventing assembly. It seems the tolerances are too tight or something about the finish maybe. I want to love this, but I no longer trust it for my needs (tour ~40 days a winter)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect... I needed a lightweight sturdy compact snow & Ice Shovel than I could use to clear my sidewalk of snow & Ice to get to my vehicle and this shovel fits the bill!! Its jagged front edge smashes ice and the shovel has a large face to clear lots of snow. The breaks down into 2 pieces for easy storage in my backpack or in the trunk of my car ... plus the stem is telescoping with secure spring load button. The bottom of the shovel is flat and has a large area to use as a base for camping stoves. Fantastic USEFUL sturdy/tough shovel at a great price ... A Must!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super light without sacrificing performance. Lighter than the other shovels I've seen used on mountaineering / snow camping trips and works every bit as well. The little design elements on the business end of the shovel are nice touches too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought 2 and have no regrets! This shovel is awesome! First day I had it, we got a 12 inch snow storm here in VT and my car got stuck in the snow. Thanks to the angle of the shovel head and aggressive teeth this shovel moves snow like it was nothing. After I dug out my car, I built a huge fort with my daughter. She loved it, and said "This is exactly what I have always wanted!" My wife also requested I buy her one. Great weight and well made materials. Nothing surprising coming from MSR. The shovel head comes off for relatively easy packing.

Knowing the dimensions for the square blade would be helpful in deciding which shovel to buy. What are the blade dimensions for this shovel? thanks

Asked by: Dr_G
That's a great question! The blade dimensions only are 25cm wide x 27cm long. Hope this helps!
