Adan, seeing as you live in SGV and I'm not that far. Send me a PM, I may have some gaiters for you. Also, I was at my local Sports Authority (Burbank) and they had a light aluminum snow shovel for $30.
These are the gaiters I have - http://www.sportchalet.com/product/301587_th0901.do?keyword=gaiter&
I plan on getting some OR ones for next season so you're welcome to these.
I think my PM is setup, if not, I'll look for your reply here.
