Neil Falkner memorial ski day Sunday

Sunday, April 9



Friends of Neil Falkner will be hosting their annual ski day this Sunday, April 9 on Whistler Mountain. If you’re interested in taking part, meet at the light board outside of the Roundhouse at 10 a.m.

That afternoon there will also be a celebration at Dusty’s, from about 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. It’s not an official fundraising event for the Neil Falkner Memorial Scholarship, but there will be a display and volunteers will pass a jar around to raise money.

Falkner, a Whistler ski patroller, died on April 12, 2002 while on a seven-day ski traverse in Banff National Park.

Each year the Memorial Scholarship fund sends a Grade 10 student from Neil’s former high school and a Whistler Secondary School student to Outward Bound, which was a pivotal experience in Neil’s own life.
