The Team

Skye Houseman


Skye is originally from British Columbia, Canada. He spent most of his childhood growing up at Whistler, where he learned how to ski. When he was 12 yrs. old, his parents decided to move to the United States and travelled all over the western part of the country. In 1984, he moved to Crested Butte with his parents, fell in love with the little mountain ski town, and never left. Skye started his career as a ski instructor in the winter, and an electrician the rest of the time.
In 1997, Skye successfully passed his Master Electricians license and bought Crested Butte Electrical, from Read Hunker, who founded the business in 1978. Skye enjoys spending his free time with his family, alpine skiing, playing ice hockey, fly fishing, and mountain biking.
