Snow shovels aren't the funnest accessory to shop for, but when you wake up to find a two-foot blanket on your front stoop, you're going to thank your forward-thinking, always-prepared self for having purchased one of these sturdy shovels. Our list includes classic shovels, collapsible options for storing in your car, and extra-long ones for clearing big driveways. Browse our picks, then give us the scoop on your favorites in the comments.

CLASSIC SHOVELS

The combination of an ergonomic handle and a nylon strip that won't scrape up wooden surfaces makes this $26 shovel a smart pick.


The double handle may look silly—but you'll probably appreciate it when you get to choose between one handle for pushing snow, and another for scooping it.


Not only can this shovel be detached into three pieces for easy storage in a car or closet, but the bright red color will help it stand out in a snowstorm.


Never underestimate the power of a snow shovel with wheels—this one is 50-percent more efficient than a traditional shovel.
