Directed by Janeen Damian, Netflix’s ‘Falling for Christmas’ is a Christmas romantic comedy movie that follows the newly engaged and spoiled hotel heiress Sierra Belmont who meets with a skiing accident just a few days before Christmas. The accident is quite impactful, so much so that she suffers from total amnesia. Fortunately, she is found by a handsome yet down-on-his-luck lodge owner and widower named Jake Russell and his daughter, Avy. For the time being, he offers Sierra a room in his own place to take care of her and help her regain her lost memories.
However, as the two spend more time together, Jake falls head over heels in love with Sierra. Starring Lindsay Lohan, Chord Overstreet, George Young, and Jack Wagner, the heartwarming narrative makes the movie an ideal watch, especially during the holiday season. Moreover, the Christmas setting and the backdrop of snow-filled roads and streets make one curious to know where ‘Falling for Christmas’ was shot. If you are frozen on the same question, let us provide you with all the necessary details!
Falling for Christmas Filming Locations
‘Falling for Christmas’ was filmed entirely in Utah, specifically in Salt Lake City and Park City. As per reports, the principal photography for the Lindsay Lohan-starrer commenced in November 2021 under the working title ‘Christmas in Wonderland’ and wrapped up after a month or so, in mid-December of the same year. Now, here is a closer look at all the places that appear in the Christmas rom-com.
Salt Lake City, Utah
Some pivotal sequences for ‘Falling for Christmas’ were lensed in and around Salt Lake City, Utah’s capital and most populous city. From the looks of it, the filming unit seemingly traveled across the city to tape various scenes against suitable backdrops. Located in the northeast corner of the Salt Lake Valley, Salt Lake City is known for its cold semi-arid climate, with snow starting to fall from November to April. As a result, many tourists visit the city during these months primarily for skiing and other outdoor recreational activities. All these characteristics favor the production of movies like ‘Falling for Christmas.’
Park City, Utah
Many important scenes for the Netflix movie were recorded in Park City, a city at the south end of Utah’s Snyderville Basin. To be specific, all the lodge scenes were reportedly taped at an actual lodge named Stein Eriksen Lodge Deer Valley at 7700 Stein Way in Park City. Known to be Utah’s longest-running Forbes Five-Star hotel and spa, the lodge strives to provide a luxurious stay for its guests. The premise is adorned with crackling fireplaces, oversized leather chairs, and a welcoming ambiance.
Despite being situated southeast of Salt Lake City, Park City is usually much colder as it lies above 7,000 feet above sea level. Apart from being a popular tourist destination, it is a pivotal shooting location for many filmmakers. In fact, it has hosted the production of different movies and TV shows. Some notable ones are ‘Hereditary,’ ‘Wind River,’ ‘Dumb and Dumber,’ and ‘Yellowstone.’
