Mogul skiing mesmerized Laurent Dumais from a young age. His father would take him to Stoneham, Quebec, where he would learn the basics of the sport. As a kid, he one day saw a group of skiers with patches on their knees and asked his father who they were.

He was watching the Stoneham Freestyle Team train and wanted to try it himself, which would eventually start the evolution of Laurent becoming a mogul skier. Like many skiers from Quebec, he was also inspired by legendary names like Jean-Luc Brassard and Pierre-Alexandre Rousseau.

Laurent was also drawn to local Stoneham stars, such as the Marquis brothers (Vincent and Philippe), as well as a young Alexandre Bilodeau whose career was starting to flourish at the time.

Laurent would get his call to the national team in 2014 and has been progressing ever since. In 2016 he made his biggest breakthrough by finishing third at the Val Saint-Côme FIS World Cup to grab his first career World Cup podium in only his seventh event. A few weeks later, Laurent was selected to represent Canada at the 2016 FIS Junior Ski Championships in Are, Sweden, where he would go on to capture gold in the dual moguls event. 

Since then, Laurent has stood on the World Cup podium twice more and is aiming to secure himself a spot at the next Olympic Games.
