Biography

Justine Dufour-Lapointe is the youngest of three moguls skiing sisters who all competed at Sochi 2014. While making her Olympic debut in Sochi, she 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.

Dufour-Lapointe stood on the podium again at PyeongChang 2018, winning the silver medal. In her third Olympic appearance at Beijing 2022, Dufour-Lapointe was unable to advance from the first final run after she lost an edge on the upper part of the moguls course and fell. She showed her pride and determination when she still decided to get up and finish her run, even though it would not count. 

In 2013, Dufour-Lapointe won moguls bronze in her debut at the FIS World Championships. In 2015 she won moguls gold and dual moguls silver at the world championships. She captured another world championship moguls bronze in 2017. In 2019, she made it to the moguls superfinal at the world championships, finishing fifth overall. 

Dufour-Lapointe made her World Cup debut in December 2010 and won dual moguls bronze in just her second start. She reached her first World Cup moguls podium in January 2012 and recorded her first victory in January 2013. From 2011-12 to 2015-16 she finished second in the overall World Cup moguls standings five straight seasons. In 2016-17, she ranked third overall in the World Cup moguls standings. 

Dufour-Lapointe hit a milestone in January 2018 when she earned her 40th career World Cup podium in Calgary. She earned her 15th career World Cup victory in February 2020 in a dual moguls event in Deer Valley, bringing her career World Cup podium total to 49.
