Vohra started skiing seven years ago. Like mountaineering, it was love at first sight. “I love the thrill of skiing. Mountaineering and skiing are adventure sports that take you out of your comfort zone. You learn to conquer your fears. And the feeling of accomplishment gives you a good high, âhe explained.
Mountain sports have given life lessons to the boss of Jigsaw Academy. âThere are a lot of tough days when climbing a summit. Some days the effort feels overwhelming. Other days the weather seems determined to mess up your plans. But you survive all those tough days. And you learn that you have a lot more resilience than you I thought you did. This knowledge helps a lot on the job. When the days are tough, I always look back on my mountaineering days and I think to myself, “Yes. I could survive that, I can survive that too, “” he concluded.
