Frozen in Love Filming Locations
In ‘Frozen in Love,’ the actors are based in Denver, Colorado, but in reality, that’s not the case. The production unit scouted for locations throughout British Columbia, Canada, and settled on a winter wonderland, Revelstoke, which also served as a primary filming location for Hallmark’s ‘Marry Me at Christmas.’ The film was shot in November, through early December, 2017. Here are the details.
Revelstoke, British Columbia
Revelstoke is a quaint town located in British Columbia, Canada. It lies on the banks of the Columbia River, and is surrounded by the mighty Mount Mackenzie and Monashee Mountains.
The bookstore scenes were filmed on a set that was specifically created for the film.
Downtown Revelstoke was transformed into a movie set for shooting ‘Frozen in Love.’ Though the crew filmed in December, Mackenzie Avenue didn’t have enough snow to satiate the film’s need, therefore the production department had to lay down faux snow, i.e., multiple layers of cotton carpet to replicate the snow. Check out the post from a local newspaper, Revelstoke Review.

Here’s a movie scene from the film, featuring Racheal Cook (Marie) and Sandy Sidhu (Janet). It was filmed opposite Grizzly Book & Serendipity Shop, Mackenzie Avenue.
Also, the owner of one of Kelowna’s famous YLW Tacos Food Truck, ditched his plans of a brief winter hiatus, to grab the sales opportunity when he learnt the filming crew of ‘Frozen in Love’ was in town.
Although it’s famous for its lip-smacking Tacos and Quesadillas, the truck can be seen serving coffee in the film at Grizzly Plaza.
You see that yellow truck at the back? Yeah, that’s the one.
Several scenes were filmed at famous Revelstoke landmarks like Grizzly Plaza, Revelstoke Forum (December 4), Grizzly Bear Square (December 6 and 7), the lane behind Everything Revelstoke, etc. A public notice was issued by the City of Revelstoke, regarding road closures due to filming.
The whole hockey sequence, including the scene where Rachael falls while celebrating her first shot, were shot at the popular Revelstoke Forum.
Here’s a fun behind the scenes picture posted by Rachael on her Instagram profile.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort served as the filming location for the skiing scenes. It holds a reputation of being one of Canada’s toughest ski slopes, situated at the Kootenay Rockies, it is a popular skiing destination for all the adrenaline junkies.
Here’s an on-location picture posted by Rachael.
Tammy Gillis, who plays Erica, also posted a selfie with Niall, from the set.
If you happen to visit Revelstoke, you can try out a variety of adventure sports, like snowmobile trails, white water rafting, dog sledding, snowshoeing, paragliding, helicopter and cat ski/snowboard, etc., or explore the Nordic trails and enjoy live music at Grizzly Plaza.
Vancouver, British Columbia
In an interview with a local newspaper, Rachael revealed that half of the filming took place across the scenic city of Vancouver. While the bookstore scenes were shot on a set, Maple Ridge Public Library served as the filming location for the library.
Check out the pictures that Madison Smith, who plays Tyler, posted on his Instagram profile.
The dinner scenes were shot in Abbortsford, Greater Vancouver.
