Lightweight, tough and remarkably versatile, Hilleberg's Snow & Sand pegs are unique. After finding most so-called snow pegs to be too soft â€“ they would bend in any but the fluffiest snow â€“ Hilleberg developed their own. Made from hardened aluminum, Hilleberg's Snow Pegs are built to withstand both very hard usage, including the inevitable contact with shovels, crampons and other winter gear, and very hard snow. At the same time, they are remarkably lightweight. The integrated line and hook gives you the flexibility either to bury the peg sideways in snow or sand, Deadman style, or to use it in a traditional, upright fashion.
