Big White Ski Resort is the backdrop for a new Hallmark movie.
The production of the Hallmark movie, Alice in Winterland, began Nov. 15 and it is set to air in 2020, during the Winterfest line-up.
Cast and crew will be staying for a total of 138 nights at the resort to also shoot a commercial.
Last fall, a crew of more than 80 people filmed on the mountain for Hallmark’s A Winter Princess.
“When a show is looking for something specific like snow in November, there are only a few places that they can go in B.C. and Big White is a no-brainer,” said Jon Summerland, film commissioner at the Okanagan Film Commission in a press release.
Summerland estimates that the economic impact of the new Hallmark film would require $85,000 per day for filming.
