Solving for Z | A Calculus of Risk
How much can we gain from the mountains? How much can we lose? Between our own perceptions and the reality of the hazards, how much space exists? And in that gap, how do we decide what we are willing to risk?
Solving for Z explores IFMGA guide and father Zahan Billimoria’s relationship to the intoxicating highs and crushing blows of a life in the high-consequence environment of big mountain skiing.
Education is a crucial part of the equation. Learn about Zahan’s Samasara Mountain Experience programs, or be sure to seek out opportunities in your own backyard: https://samsaraexperience.com/
