October 2013 

Whistler, BC…Ski Butlers Whistler, a Ski Butlers franchise, has been sold to Whistler local Derek Rhodes, also owner of Profile Ski and Snowboard. 

“The past six seasons at Ski Butlers have been some of the most exciting years of our lives and we have had the privilege to get to know so many community members through the business,” said Karin Schulze and Rob Giffin, previous owners of Ski Butlers Whistler. “It has been such a pleasure to work with and become friends with so many fantastic and inspiring people.” 

“While this decision did not come easy, we knew it was the right decision, especially when we found Derek Rhodes to purchase our company. Derek is the perfect fit to take Ski Butlers Whistler to the next level and carry on our commitment to offer the best customer service possible.” 

Derek Rhodes is current owner of Profile Ski and Snowboard, Whistler’s only tuning specific shop with door to door delivery service. Derek will continue to operate his successful company and begin working with the Ski Butlers brand. “This is the perfect fit and a natural decision,” said Derek Rhodes. “Working with Karin and Rob as a tuning partner, I have become very familiar with Ski Butlers. I can’t wait to WOW our customers and work with everyone in this community and become a part of Ski Butlers award-winning brand.”
