Zanskar, a subdistrict of Kargil in India, is covered in snow for almost half the year. Over two decades ago, three friends used this to their advantage and opened a ski school to improve travel conditions to the region, and the quality of life of the local people. By developing a culture of mountain sports, the trio also gave young people of Zanskar a reason to stay in the region. Shangku Shelter shows the power of community while telling an extraordinary tale of friendship and social change.
