Marie-Pier Préfontaine

    Professional Big Mountain Skier and Former Alpine Canada Athlete

    Pemberton, BC, Canada

    After starting skiing at the age of three, Marie-Pier, who often goes by MP, developed a passion for skiing young. Coached by her mother until she was 15, MP joined the National Ski Team one year later. She made her World Cup debut in December of 2006, and then earned her first World Cup finish in November of 2009 in Giant Slalom. She attended her first Olympic Games in her home country in the Vancouver 2010 events, which was quickly followed by an incredible top-ten finish in Arber-Zwiesel, Germany. MP then competed in her second Olympic Winter Games at Sochi in 2014. After representing her country for a decade, she made the decision to retire from the Canadian Alpine Ski Team. Thrilled with the experiences that she had gained throughout the course of her career, she speaks fondly of the amazing people she met and about what an epic journey it was. These days, MP is still actively coaching on slopes around the world, and when not skiing, you can often find her mountain biking or catching waves on her surfboard.
