The Ski Butlers Scholarship Fund
Bryn Carey founded Ski Butlers out of a single car garage in 2004 and has since successfully expanded his business to 10 locations serving 35 North American Ski Resorts.
Carey graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of New Hampshire in 2004. Using his degree and passion for the mountains and skiing, he applied both towards his prior summer business, Park City Seal Coat and his latest venture, Ski Butlers. Carey began to ski at the age of one with his desire to be in the mountains continuing through high school and leading him to captain the Division 1 ski team at UNH.
Today, Ski Butlers' vision is to deliver happiness to their customers, team members and partners by delivering legendary customer service. This happens daily both inside the offices and also out on the ski slopes.
