Chris Pilley, CEO/contract manager for Rocky Mountain Holiday Tours, now owns the company. Pilley, who has been with the company for nearly nine years, purchased it from Gary Schluter. Pilley started with Rocky Mountain Holiday Tours as a part time/seasonal employee, working four hours a day from April through August. “Then I simply refused to leave and somehow talked Gary into selling the company to me!” said Piller. Schluter, who has been with the company for more than 30 years, plans to retire from his daily tasks at the end of this year. The company reports lackluster sales for 2017; however, 2018 bookings have registered an increase of over 10 percent.
