I carry my old avalanche shovel in my vehicle which would work much better for you for snow than any entrenching tool.https://www.amazon.com/s?k=avalanche+shovel&gclid=CjwKCAjwtajrBRBVEiwA8w2Q8OWejgwVOwPsJi2NE1-vUv_8D0va5d4oESRybrh_TJf-RijgXDnG7BoC0agQAvD_BwE&hvadid=178128591722&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9019691&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t1&hvqmt=e&hvrand=16476055075788465253&hvtargid=kwd-276444389&hydadcr=15003_9758863&tag=googhydr-20&ref=pd_sl_3q9xjd90ki_e
The avalanche shovel would beat an entrenching tool for snow removal, but I prefer an entrenching tool for packability and versatility.
I ended up ordering a USGI etool. And Im very pleased with the quality. Havent used/tested it yet, but for a mere $25, Im satisfied. Feels nice and sturdy, packs up nicely. with my current tools and recovery straps, space is getting very limited under my lockable rear seat.
Personally I like the Cold Steel Spetznaz shovel as I am always leery of moving parts in a heavy duty tool. That having been said, I pounded the Gerber Gorge through several inches of hard packed ice without even the slightest feeling of potential failure. https://www.multitool.org/blog/gerber-gorge-folding-shovelIt stood up to me digging a large enough hole for my Jeep, so I wouldn't be concerned about it for just about anything else. It is one tough shovel.Def
