Lorraine has been featured in ski films by Warren Miller and Shades of Winter, as well as in a series of experimental ski films by Austrian filmmaker Hanno Mackowitz.

Interview

1. Favorite Dalbello Boot
DRS race boot with the 93mm last and soft flex
2. What do you use this boot for?
In-resort freeriding, freeride comps
3. Why do you like this boot?
Amazing power transfer, precise, love the height of the boot and roomy toe box as well as the progressive flex, comfortable, warm - hands down the best boot I've ever had.
4. Why do you like being a part of the Dalbello team?
I love the passion Dalbello has for making boots, the fact that they are a family-run business and a specialist manufacturer of boots for 44 years now. They also fitted my boots for me in their own workshop in Asolo, Italy, and did an incredible job. Such a bad ass company!
5. How long have you been riding for Dalbello?
Since 2017
