“Lupe” – Die Geschichte von Freeski-Pro Lupe Hagearty

Lupe Hagearty ist in der Core-Szene ein nicht nur sehr bekannter, sondern auch äußerst beliebter Freeski-Pro. Der sympathische US-Amerikaner hat durch das Skifahren seinen Weg zu einem glücklichen Leben gefunden, ist vor kurzem 30 Jahre alt geworden und hat mit seiner Freeski-Karriere noch lange nicht abgeschlossen. Hier ist seine ganze Geschichte.

Lupe Hagearty, a household name in the professional freeski world, provides an intimate look into his life and decade-long ski career in this acclaimed documentary film.

Lupe has always had to hustle for everything in his life. After his mother passed suddenly when he was 5 and his father battled addiction, he and his sister struggled to make ends meet. When his extended family took him skiing in Vermont to escape life at home, he fell in love with the sport.

Now 30 and living in Salt Lake City, Lupe has had a successful career as a pro-skier for over a decade, filming with legends Tanner Hall and Tom Wallisch and competing in X Games Real Ski in 2021. But the challenge is far from over. Despite living out his dream, Lupe still struggles to have the financial security to one day have a family of his own, grinding each year to renew sponsorships and continue living out his dream.

As the Christmas holidays approach, he travels home to his family in Hartford, CT, confronting his difficult past and reflecting on his career, trying to figure out what is next…”
