Neil Falkner was a popular Whistler ski patroller who worked as a motorcycle tour guide in summer and whose enthusiasm for sharing the beauty of British Columbia’s backroads, powder snow, mountains and trails was infectious.

The 32-year-old was also a passionate mountain biker and loyal friend, son, and brother. A memorial plaque commemorating his life is now displayed on House Rock, a large rock overlooking the Cheakamus River at the southern end of the town of Whistler, B.C., Canada. Neil’s biography can be read here.
