 @stuie321: Nope. We have no nice shovels here. I have looked extensively.
I think Sam bought those over from England.

 If anyone has an answer to this (in the US) I would be genuinely interested! Every now and then I come very close to trying to get some of these shovels shipped from Europe, but haven't quite been able to justify the shipping cost yet. I don't know that they would be that much of an improvement really, but the shape seems like a better design for building trails than the square shovels we have stateside.

Anyone want to try to put together a group buy?

 No spectators allowed this year. Such a pity. So close yet so far. On a positive note, the footage is going to be incredible! They set the cinematography bar super high last time.
