Biography

Justine DUFOUR-LAPOINTE

The youngest member of “3SDL”, as Canadian freestyle skiing sisters the Dufour-Lapointes are known, Justine achieved all her goals at Sochi 2014: taking part in an Olympic Winter Games with her older sisters, winning moguls gold, and sharing the podium with sister Chloé. Four years later in PyeongChang she was on the podium again, taking silver behind France’s Perrine Laffont.

Sweet beginnings

The legend of 3SDL began long before their careers reached their peak. Maxime, the oldest, and Chloé, the middle sister, used to coach their youngest sibling on the slopes of Canada’s Mont Blanc in the Laurentians, not far from their home city of Montreal. Quebec is a traditional hotbed of free-style skiing, and like many Quebecois, the sisters’ main passion was for the moguls.

In order to convince the eight-year-old Justine to follow them down the slopes, Maxime and Chloé used to bribe her with chocolate! Their efforts paid off. Described by her mother Johane as “the essence of joie de vivre”, it was the youngest sibling who turned out to be the most gifted of the three.

Sensational debut

Under the watchful gaze of their mother who also acts as their manager, the three Dufour-Lapointe sisters have always been inseparable. Maxime made her freestyle World Cup debut in 2007, Chloé in 2008 and Justine in 2010, when she was aged just 16. Since then they have travelled and competed together across the globe.
