An interview with freestyle skier and Olympian Justine Dufour-Lapointe, our Oberson ambassador

Justine Dufour-Lapointe Oberson

Why did you agree to be associated with the Oberson brand?
I like the in-store vibe. It’s a blend of family and tradition that strikes a chord with my values.

What are your five most favourite products at Oberson?
Helly Hansen’s merino wool base layers, Maison Scotch clothing, Seirus’ balaclava in black, Parajumpers’ long and puffy coat perfect for a walk in the ski villages, and UGG boots for warmth and comfort after a day of skiing.

What is your goal this season?
My goal is to give my best performance at the World Championships at the end of season!

I would also like to achieve my new jump (the Cork 720) at one of the World Cup races.

Do you listen to music at the start of a race?
I like “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift.

What is your fondest memory on the circuit?
The final World Cup of the season is always epic. Everybody’s so happy. We’re celebrating the end of a long year and partying with all the other nations.

What’s your favourite restaurant in Montréal?
For breakfast, it has to be Le Passé Composé. And one of my favourite bistros, which I discovered only recently, is called Lavanderia. (bistropassecompose.com and lavanderiaresto.com)

Tell us something no one else knows…
I make the best gluten-free pumpkin pie!
