One of three moguls skiing sisters who all competed at Sochi 2014, Maxime Dufour-Lapointe made her Olympic debut with a 12th place finish. The eldest of the three, Dufour-Lapointe had been able to experience the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games as a forerunner for the ladies’ moguls event in which her younger sister Chloé was competing.

Dufour-Lapointe made her World Cup debut in February 2007 and has been a regular competitor on the circuit since 2008. She earned her first World Cup podium in January 2014 when she finished third in moguls at Deer Valley.

In 2009, Dufour-Lapointe became one of the first women to perform a backflip with a full twist in competition.
