2013_05_12_HDSHOT_C_Dufour-Lapointe-4_1340pxOne of three moguls skiing sisters, middle child Chloé Dufour-Lapointe was the first to compete at the Olympic Games, finishing fifth as an 18-year-old at Vancouver 2010. She made a move onto the podium at Sochi 2014, winning silver behind younger sister Justine, making them the third set of sisters to finish 1-2 in the same Winter Olympic event.

Dufour-Lapointe was a double medallist at the 2007 World Junior Championships, winning gold in dual moguls and bronze in moguls when she was just 15. She made her World Cup debut in December of that year, just after her 16th birthday. She went on to earn the 2007-08 FIS World Cup Rookie of the Year on the strength of six top-10 finishes. In March 2009 she reached her first World Cup podium.

Having grown up idolizing two-time Olympic champion Jenn Heil, Dufour-Lapointe had the honour of racing directly against Heil in her final world championship appearance in 2011. Heil won the final dual moguls showdown, but that gave Dufour-Lapointe the silver, her first world championship medal. Two years later Dufour-Lapointe moved to the top of the podium, winning the dual moguls at the 2013 World Championships.
