History

Julia Murray is a retired Canadian skier and the daughter of 'Crazy Canuck' Dave Murray and freestyle legend Stephanie Sloan. Her father died when she was only 22 months old. Born and raised in Whistler, she learned to ski in her early childhood and started alpine racing at age eight. She later switched from racing to ski cross, becoming one of the four inaugural members of the Canadian National Ski Cross Team in 2007. Throughout her career she would achieve three World Cup podium finishes.

Murray competed in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games despite having an injured knee; she had previously supported Whistler's Olympic bid by speaking in front of the International Olympic Committee and the Prime Minister at the age of 13. She came in 12th place in the Olympic debut of the ski cross event. The following year, suffering from a second injury, she achieved a second-place finish at the FIS World Championships. In 2012 Murray retired from professional skiing so as to not aggravate her injuries further.

Following her retirement, Murray completed a Communications Diploma from Capilano University, launched the Ski With an Olympian program with Whistler Blackcomb, started her own cereal company, Jules Fuel, and a food blog, Hooked on Plants, and acted as an announcer at ski cross events. She married fellow Canadian freestyle skier Davey Barr in 2018.
