A major chunk of the film was shot across British Columbia, while some scenes were shot in Vancouver, also known as Hollywood North. Here are the specific locations.

Squamish, British Columbia

Squamish is a quaint town in British Columbia, located just an hour away from Vancouver. Here’s a location introduction tweet from the lead actor Trever Don, who clearly loved the place.

Well, he didn’t stop at that, here’s another tweet where Trevor is complimenting the Squamish folks of being really sweet and kind.

The opening shot of ‘SnowComing’ along with the majority of scenes were filmed in downtown Squamish, according to the film’s director Peter DeLuise, who tweeted the information.

Remember the scene where Jake and Samantha sledge down the slope in the frozen snow, after Samantha kidnaps him? Well, it was “the same 30 yards of snow slope shot over and over.” Don’t believe us? Check out the tweet from the director, DeLuise.

But also, that was the only scene where the film used real snow. The scene was filmed near Whistler Mountain. The spot was at the foot of a mountain which serves as a base for Alpine Skiing and Jumping during Olympics.

The director further added, that the snow used in almost the entire film, is fake.

Vancouver, British Columbia

The scene towards the end, where Samantha’s father and football coach Kerrigan, is felicitated by the town for his service and when Jake announces that he is taking over the position, was shot at Vancouver, British Columbia.
