Springtime missions just got lighter.
Oftentimes an ice axe is overkill. A whippet (link?) is great for spring tours when the skintrack gets slick and you want a little extra peace of mind just in case you slip. Now, when the skintrack ends, you can stash the lower pieces of the pole in your pack and transform your whippet into an ice axe-like tool to plunge into the snow for easier and more secure climbing, and to carry while riding like you would an axe
That said, this is not a complete replacement for an ice axe. Use at your own risk!
