Philippe was selected to the Freestyle Canadian team in 2007. He quickly climbed the world rankings to be named FIS Freestyle “Rookie of the year“ in 2008-2009. In 2010, Philippe was one of the forerunners at the Vancouver Winter Olympics, which kick-started his career.
After suffering a severe shoulder injury that made him miss the 2010-2011 season, he came back to claim his first World Cup podium and his first World Cup victory shortly after in Sweden during the 2011-2012 season. From that point on, Philippe always stayed ranked in the top 10 in the world and eventually qualified for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
Philippe stood on multiple podiums in the following years, with a World Championships silver medal in 2015, one of his favourite career moments. In 2018, a month leading to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Philippe tore his ACL ligament in his right knee. Defying all odds, he still competed in his second Olympics finals. Philippe then came back in 2019 to finish with a silver medal at his last international event in Japan.
Philippe retired from competitive mogul skiing after the 2019 season. Soon after, he joined the Ski & Snowboard Club Vail, where he worked as the FIS head coach for three seasons.
Philippe is now back with the Canadian team as a coach, where he offers a great deal of experience, energy and optimism to the next generation of mogul skiers.
