Trivia

Movie was filmed at Mont Tremblant in Quebec, Canada. The mountain layout and buildings in the movie were the originals from 1950 and stayed until mid 90's when the mountain was purchased by Intrawest and re-developed to what it is today. The only buildings that are still there today are the Church and the Lodge where the actors film several scenes outside as well as inside. All the lifts and other buildings are no longer there.

Filmed in Mt. Tremblant outside of Montreal
28 May 2012 | by barbaratransueSee all my reviews

I have fond memories of this movie (especially of Sonny Bono, who was a really nice gentleman). The setting of this movie was supposed to be Lake Placid because of the Olympics, but much of it was filmed in Mt. Tremblant because there was not enough snow at Lake Placid when they were filming. We were there on a high school trip when they were filming and a few of my classmates and I were paid extras in some scenes. We were paid something like $27 a day for a couple of days to sit in the bar, drink Molson, play backgammon (with Sonny) and walk through scenes. For HS kids, that was great drinking money at the time! If anyone knows where to get a copy of this, I'd love to know about it! Footnote: Mt. Tremblant is where Natasha Richardson had her fatal skiing accident.
