For a slight bit more you can upgrade to the Black Diamond Transfer 7 at MEC ($49 vs $37). Definitely worth the extra $12 IMO which you're probably just going to spend on a case of Bow Valley anyway.
Even that BCA B-2 EXT shovel looks pretty good for $55.

I really like shovels that have extendable handles. Compared to 1-piece handled shovels, you get a longer extended length for better digging AND a shorter compacted length for better storage - the best of both.
