I ended up using that one I made for something and then when done I walk right over to a small branch that was bothering me and hacked it off in about three hits!

The general design of portable shovels for wintertime look a bit different around here. The Fiskars below is a typical example. They are good for building shelters and digging down on trips, and nice to have in the back of the car or snowmobile. Not so great on ice or icy snow - old shovels of this kind will often develop a rip in the aluminium after a lot of such use. The main benefit of a shovel made for snow is that it gets the those kinds of jobs done much faster due to the shape and size.

Personally I have a middle of the road option for the car. A bit smaller, and with a pointy steel blade - though not so small as the collapsible ones. The weight difference matters less in the car, and it will handle ice as well. (That thing is supposedly made for digging in steep uphill areas - thus shorter handle than normal).
