Montana Couple Ski 144 Days, Breaking Records


Bob and Sylvia Torter had skied nearly every day of Big Sky Resort’s winter season, and that’s despite a fractured ankle, a bout with pneumonia and cancer treatment on the far side of the continent. The couple, who’ve shared a zip code with the southwest Montana resort for two decades, focused on many a record in their 18 years of marriage, such as riding 11-day, 11,000-mile motorcycle rallies, and logging the most ski lessons of any couple ever at the 5,800-acre resort—some 300 hours’ worth. The latter, says Sylvia, a native of Argentina, “is because I had never experienced snow until I came to Montana.” So when they realized that their previous season’s 132 on-slopes days could be exceeded in a Leap Year, the Torters aimed for the Full Monty: 144 ski days—together—certainly a Big Sky record and possibly a national one for couples. “We’ve never skied separately in 18 seasons,” laughs Bob.
