“Winter’s Dream” Movie Debut

Former professional skier Kat works as a ski aid and ski shop worker at Bliss Mountain, where she prepares for a Winterfest to drum up business for the quaint town. Widowed father Ty and his daughter Anna come from New York to train with ski champion (and Kat’s former teammate) Maddy, and quickly connect with Kat when Maddy’s coaching style proves to be too aggressive for Anna. A spark forms between Kat and Ty as Kat coaches Anna and prepares for Winterfest with Ty. When a fall down the hill causes Anna to rethink the race and plan to go home early with Ty, though, Kat may lose both her new relationship and her rekindled confidence as a coach. Kat, Ty and Anna must all look deep within to conquer their fears and push forward.

Check out our big film debut, filmed on location in Manning Park! http://www.hallmarkchannel.com/winters-dream

We were very excited to host the cast and crew of Hallmark Channel’s production of “Winter’s Dream” this past December.

This is a heart-warming tale for the whole family, starring Dean Cain and Kristy Swanson. It features Manning Park Resort lodge, accommodations and ski hill prominently, as well as scenes from the town of Hope, and Mad Dog’s Source for Sports in Abbotsford.

The feedback for the movie has been great, with over 3.6 MILLION VIEWERS! “Winter’s Dream” also ranked as the #1 rated cable movie of the week. Congratulations to the cast and crew for an incredible job, and thank you for showcasing our beautiful mountain resort! What a great experience it was to host the Hallmark Channel crew!

Kristin Booth, the executive producer, explained: “One thing they did not need to do was add in any CGI snow. You really felt like you were in this winter paradise. It’s only a couple hours out of Vancouver, but it felt so remote and sort of pristine and untouched.”
