For someone who started skiing just because “her friend was doing it”, Maxime has transformed her then-hobby into a full-time career. When the oldest of the three describes herself has determined and hard-working, you only have to look at her four ascensions on the podium during World Cups to believe her every word.
Her schedule is a matter of balance – she splits it between her passion for skiing and her love for horseback riding, surfing and arts. The common denominator? Excellence. In fact, she often teams up with her sisters to encourage girls to get moving through different initiatives. By focusing on constantly improving herself, Maxime sure is an example to follow.
“When you set a goal, you can’t go halfway. You have to give 100%.” Maxim Dufour-Lapointe
Her lifetime goal? Becoming a doctor, but only when she’ll have fulfilled her full potential on the slopes.
