Yates Cable Picket

YatesThis is a "New Zealand style pickett" with a V profile. It is available with and without a cable, both at 22" length. I recommend the cable version with its generous 42" runner.

These pickets are a few ounces lighter than most others, and the V profile stacks compactly versus a T profile. They are a tad shorter than most other pickets, which generally come in 24" and 36" lengths, so if you’re dealing primarily with placements in soft snow these may not be ideal.

At higher altitudes and in colder regions, however, the snow is often bulletproof and difficult to work. Here the cable is a great assist as it effectively saws through hard snow for faster placement.
