Set in Zanskar, Indian Himalaya, Shangku Shelter is a story of two decades of adventure, friendship and social change, driven by a love of skiing. Zanskar is a remote kingdom in the northwest Indian Himalaya, where local people are snow-bound for six months of the year. About 10,000 Zanskaris live in the isolated valley. In winter, mountain passes are blocked, the summer Jeep road closes and buses stop. Two decades ago, three friends founded a ski school – to enable winter travel in the valley, improve quality of life, and to encourage young people to stay in Zanskar by helping establish a culture of mountain sports. The film tells the story of this friendship, the ski school and the development of skiing in the area. Along the way a bigger question is raised.

With a short pocket of weather opening on the final days of their stay, the team head out in gliders to get a good look at the face and define their lines.
