Outward Bound

Neil Falkner on Whistler

Looks like Neil just ate a faceful of snow, which explains the smile.

IN APRIL of 2002 by brother, Neil, died on a backcountry ski tour in the Alberta Rockies. Until then, he was a ski patroller of Whistler Mountain in winter and a guide for motorcycle tours through British Columbia in the summer. He made a living at playing in the most beautiful parts of the world.

His love of challenge, adventure, and extremes was nurtured by an Outward Bound expedition he took at the age of 16. He had to be dragged to it, and dragged from it. He spent the rest of his life pursuing adventures, breaking trail, and expanding his boundaries.

To learn more about Neil, or make a donation to Outward Bound in his memory, please visit my family’s memorial web page to him.
