The youngest of three moguls skiing sisters who all competed at Sochi 2014, Justine Dufour-Lapointe has recently been the most successful of the trio. While making her Olympic debut in Sochi, Dufour-Lapointe made history with older sister Chloé when they finished 1-2, becoming just the third set of sisters to ever win gold and silver in the same Winter Olympic event. Along with eldest sister Maxime, they became just the third trio of sisters to compete in the same individual event at the Winter Games. In 2013 Dufour-Lapointe won moguls bronze in her world championship debut. In 2015 she added the world championship gold medal to her Olympic gold medal and won silver in the non-Olympic dual moguls.
She captured another world championship moguls bronze in 2017. Dufour-Lapointe made her World Cup debut in December 2010 and won dual moguls bronze in just her second World Cup start. She reached her first World Cup moguls podium in January 2012 and recorded her first World Cup moguls victory in January 2013. From 2011-12 to 2015-16 she finished second in the overall World Cup moguls standings five straight seasons. Through 2016-17 she has 23 career World Cup moguls podiums including nine victories.
