Lus la phen pey s-ki lobjong len na

Tas tang cho lo styang khor mang po sal te

English (rough translation)

Skiing, skiing
O' the sport of skiing
Skiing is a wonderful sport
Every school is welcome.

First verse
Our land, a land of snow
Bear in mind the long winter
The ski school !
Come and learn to ski.

Second verse
Sports for a strong body
Beneficial for the body
The ski school !
Come and learn to ski.

Third verse
Useless and meaningless,
The cards and dice, many roam the streets
Human life is precious
Meaningful and valuable, don't waste it !

Fourth verse
In the square mother-field of intellect
Sow the seed of interest
This precious golden seed can fill the store
Why can't we fill this store ?

Fifth verse
An undiagnosed illness
Take the pill of good advice
Now skilled and powerful
Why don't you take a good position ?

Sixth verse
Zanskar Society
And everybody involved
On behalf of Amin
Congratulations and good luck !
