'Moose' signs on with Alpine Mountain Ranch
Steamboat Springs Jim "Moose" Barrows, a member of the Colorado Ski Hall of Fame and a Steamboat Springs native, has joined the sales and public relations team at Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club.
A 1968 Olympian in downhill skiing, Barrows has been active in the ski and real estate industries. He is a longtime friend of Alpine Mountain Ranch co-developers Andy Daly and Bill Butler.
"We are delighted to have Moose available to give property owners, their guests and prospective buyers an insider's view of the community," Daly said.

Bear Lodge boosts bear market with 8 sales
The sale of eight new condominiums at Bear Lodge in the Trappeurs Crossing complex for a combined $9.29 million helped the Routt County real estate market achieve gross dollar volume of nearly $38 million in November.
Still, that number was 42 percent of November 2007's $89.7 million, and the lowest November total since 2003, according to statistics released by Bruce Carta, of Land Title Guarantee Co., in Steamboat Springs.
The new condominiums at Bear Lodge averaged $1.16 million per unit.
November totals bring the year-to-date number to nearly $685 million. That compares to $1.58 billion for the record year of 2007.
This year's dollar volume has surpassed that of 2004, but won't reach the 2005 year-end total of $885.9 million.
