Set in a winter wonderland that is Aspen, the Christmastime vibe and striking visuals of the Rich Newey directorial can make viewers gaze at their screens with awe. Curious to learn where exactly these places are located? We have got you covered.
Crashing Through the Snow Filming Locations
The Hallmark movie was filmed extensively in Manitoba and supposedly in Alberta as well. The production of the romantic comedy reportedly began in mid-April 2021, and it wrapped up sometime in the first week of May of the same year. Apart from the northern polar bear population, Manitoba is known for its varied terrain that includes forests, mountains, and rivers.
Alberta, on the other hand, is home to the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, vast coniferous forests, mesmerizing snow-capped mountains, and prairies. Since the movie’s filming took place in such stunning scenic locations, we wanted to find more about the specific places, so we investigated further. Here’s everything we could find out about them.
The principal photography of the romantic comedy movie was done in Winnipeg. Home to numerous film and television production companies such as Les Productions Rivard, Buffalo Gal Pictures, Farpoint Films, and Frantic Films, the capital of Manitoba has hosted the production of well-known movies such as ‘Shall We Dance?’ ‘A Dog’s Purpose,’ and ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.’
The cast and crew involved with the production reportedly had to quarantine for 14-days before the filming actually began. The production team also followed COVID-19 appropriate behavior to ensure the smooth filming of the Warren Christie-starrer.
The production also reportedly took place in the town of Banff. Located within the Banff National Park, the close proximity to ski resorts like Lake Louise Ski Resort, Sunshine Village, and Mt. Norquay Ski Resort makes the resort town a dream winter destination. The snow-covered beautiful scenic location naturally attracts filmmakers as well.
The town also hosts Banff Mountain Film Festival annually. Summer H. Howell, who essays the role of Mia, posted a few photos on Instagram in which she can be seen having a walk in the mesmerizing locales of the beautiful town of Banff.
