The aluminum, collapsible avalanche probe (Figure 19) helps locate bodies buried under snow, caused by
an avalanche. It is 8 feet long when fully extended and 13 inches when collapsed. It has a locking
mechanism to keep it fully extended. When collapsed, it fits inside the handle of the avalanche shovel.
