Ski Travel Tips from Pro Skier Lexi Dupont

We talked to the 26-year-old powerhouse on where to ski (and what to pack) this winter.

When Warren Miller Entertainment’s latest bit of ski porn, Chasing Shadows, premieres in Denver next week, be on the lookout for professional skier Lexi Dupont. The University of Colorado Boulder grad (she studied screenprinting and art history) traveled to Valdez, Alaska, to shoot with fellow female ski powerhouses Amie Engerbretson and McKenna Peterson, the first all-female crew for the ski and snowboard film company. Translation: Dupont is a badass. Which is why we decided to pick the 26-year-old’s brain about where we should travel this ski season—and what we absolutely need to pack.

WHERE TO GO

WHAT DUPONT PACKS FOR EVERY SKI TRIP (BESIDES HER SKIS)

DUPONT’S BIG TIP: “Traveling with your skis is always an ordeal. You have to be prepared for luggage fees. And carry your boots on the plane. One: It makes your [checked] bags a bit lighter. Two: If your bags are lost, you can always go into a local ski shop and rent skis, and at least you have your ski boots. It’s hard to rent ski boots.”

(Five ski films to watch this season)

Catch Chasing Shadows at the Paramount Theatre November 19 through 21. Tickets are $25.
