Listen Up: It’s Dom Laporte

Dom Laporte Liberty from Liberty Skis on Vimeo.

“There’s something about Dom that is set apart. You can see it in any of his edits from this season. “Yeah I think I appeared in like 15 edits this year,” he said. “It might even be too much, man.” But it makes sense when you consider his abilities. In keeping with the signature Quebec approach to skiing, Dom is creative. The caribou-on has become a sort of signature trick this year. Sander Hadley pointed out that he sets up each trick the same way: “He uses his poles dude; the guy like actually sets up the hit properly. It’s crazy.” And it’s true, too. Dom is methodical when he skis. It’s how he achieves the perfection that he’s after.”
