A legend in his own time, James "Moose" Barrows has been in the Yampa Valley since his early years. His passion for Steamboat and the surrounding area is evident by his involvement in all aspects of the community. You will enjoy working with Moose. He will keep your interests as his priority. 1996 Colorado Ski Hall of Fame Inductee and Steamboat native, Moose came up through the junior ranks starting with ski jumping at age five on Howelsen Hill. Coached by former inductee, Gordy Wren, he soon developed skills in all events. In 1958, he was awarded the Rocky Mountain News Skiing Futurity Scholarship, which provided him with his first pair of new Alpine skis. From there, he qualified for the Rocky Mountain Division team to the Junior National Championships. During this time, he gained five victories in both Downhill and Slalom. During the 1961-62 season, he won every Downhill in the Rocky Mountain Division. He completed the season by winning the prestigious Western States Team Championships Downhill combined titles in Sun Valley. He became the nation's premier four event skier, winning several NCAA skimeister titles, and was tagged "Moose" by his CU coach, Bob Beattie who helped him perfect his Alpine skills. In 1967, he finished third in the First World Cup Downhill race ever held in the US in Franconia, NH and finished the season seventh in FIS World Downhill ranking - the highest American, qualifying for the 1968 Olympic Team. His 1968 season ended abruptly during his bid for an Olympic Gold during the Downhill in Grenoble, France. His spectacular fall was well documented by ABC's Wide World of Sports, never to be forgotten. He recovered to win the 1969 North American Downhill Championships, but 1970 brought another physical setback, so he used the time to get a degree in Business from the University of Denver. He has since coached junior skiers and the US men's Downhill Team. Since retiring from coaching, he has devoted much of his time to promoting skiing, developing the concept of self-timing programs and has started a scholarship fund to provide junior skiers in the Yampa Valley with the means to train, amassing several hundred thousand dollars for his efforts.
