Welcome To The Team, Lexi Dupont!

Episode 14



Show Notes

With Lexi Dupont joining the team as a Backcountry athlete, it made perfect sense to pull her into the HQ for a podcast episode to welcome her aboard! Lexi talks us through her big mountain skiing journey, both in competition and for film.


Nils and Lexi reconnect after being on the Freeride World Tour together in years past. The pair dive into Lexi’s passion for spending time in the ocean, and her family’s rich history in aviation. They conclude their conversation by deciding the best dog breed of all time—you don’t want to miss this episode!
