Hi Greg. Just thought I might give some more info on the word "yama". This comes from Kodansha's furigana Japanese Dictionary.
Yama - 1. mountain
2. speculation, venture -- As in "yama o kakeru" - to take a calculated risk. Or "yama hodo" - as much as a a mountain, amounting to a great deal.
So the main and most common meaning of "yama" is mountian, but depending on the rest of the sentence, it can mean something else.
