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 Property Manager
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 he guides his team of 3 property managers and 2 Concierge's towards that goal everyday. 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.
