Default Decided on shovel, pack, beacon now need a probe?

Ordered my black Avalung Bandit pack and K2 rescue shovel from EVO should be here friday, going to order my Pieps DSP when I get to SLC but what about a probe?

Is 300cm necessary for Utah Snowpack?

Alum or Carbon?

Anything to watch out for or stay away from, brands, designs or materiel's?

Will be Sandy by Friday of next week, is there somewhere close(Black Diamond or storefronts?) by I can go buy the perfect probe or am I better off ordering something specific online?

Primary goal would be something that's easy\simple to use and mistake proof as possible with weight\size being secondary.

Thanks in advance
