Plehouse Films is the brainchild of professional skiers Phil Belanger, Phil Larose and Thomas Rinfret.

D-Structure opened in 1999 in Montreal as the first ski shop to cater exclusively to the newschool market. In 2003, with the implication of pro-skier Phil Belanger, a second shop opened its doors in Quebec City. Since then the most influential skiers have joined D-Structure as owners and team riders to transition the little shop into an international business venture.
