Laurianne comes from a skiing family, so naturally, she started skiing at a very young age. As Laurianne learnt how to ski, she was always looking for the steepest slopes, narrowest glades and any jump where she could catch some air time. Laurianne’s mom spent time teaching her how to ski bumps, but at age 10 the local ski hill started a mogul club and Laurianne decided to give it a try.

At first, Laurianne was only skiing and competing for fun, but when she turned 16, Laurianne realized that she wanted to take her skiing to the next level. Laurianne started to spend extra time training and eventually made it onto the Québec provincial team. These were some of Laurianne’s best years of her life, where she got the opportunity to travel with friends and enjoy being a provincial team athlete.

After a few years, Laurianne was at an age where her friends would retire from competitive skiing and move on to university. Laurianne was simply not ready to stop skiing and wanted to accomplish more in her young career. Laurianne doubled her training efforts and eventually got rewarded with a spot on the National Team in 2018.

When she is not skiing, Laurianne loves to go camping and hiking, and her favorite food is ice cream!
