Meet The The Team
Chris & Jen Torsleff are the Managing Partners of Stay Montana. They have over 55 years of combined hospitality and resort property management experience working and learning from great companies like Vail Resorts, Ritz Carlton, Hilton, & Marriott. We are proud of the fact we started out in positions of bellman and busser and worked our way to key leadership roles in some of the most respected companies in the hotel and resort industry. Chris and Jen were married in Moonlight Basin 17 years ago and continue to enjoy mountain life in Bozeman and Big Sky. Their son loves ski racing with the Big Sky ski team and their daughter loves skiing, horseback riding, and baking cookies for all our vacation rental guests. Their combined passion for hospitality excellence and creating amazing experiences for our guests inspired the startup of Stay Montana.
David Moore, Director of Operations
David is an avid snow boarder and has an overall passion for mountain living. He grew up in the Denver Colorado area and attended the University of Colorado Denver. David's passion for creating memorable experiences for our guests started as he worked in Breckenridge, CO for Vail Resorts and a premier vacation rental company. If you don't find David jumping into the Big Couloir, then you will sure find him mountain biking with his two dogs Keira and Zeke.
Sarah Woods, Director of Finance
Sarah is new to Montana, but not new to the mountains. Growing up in Fairbanks, Alaska she has loved the mountains (and snow) since she can remember. Sarah has spent the majority of her career in hospitality finance for a resort in Stevenson, WA and is excited to bring that experience to Stay Montana. She enjoys all things outdoors, yet appreciates a nice night at home by the fire.
Justin Graham, Maintenance and Housekeeping Manager
A passion for the mountains and his love for art drew Justin to Montana. His extensive experience working for Big Sky Resort has fueled his passion for hospitality. If he is not camping somewhere in the Gallatin mountain range, he is usually leading his team to ensure the perfect rental for your next stay.
Joe Jasinski, Property Manager
Joe grew up in Missouri and attended Drake University, but his passion lies in the rivers of Montana. Joe's first experiences in Montana were guiding people down the majestic white water of the Yellowstone and Gallatin Rivers. You can find him hiking, skiing, or rafting in his free time. Joe is ready to give our guests first hand accounts of the amazing experiences you can enjoy in Montana.
Sierra Burnett, Property Manager
Growing up in Colorado Springs on the foot steps of The Broadmoor Resort it was easy for Sierra's passion to grow strong for the Rockies. Sierra loves to ski and camp. If she is not on the mountain she is usually helping our guests plan the perfect Montana vacation.
