The three-day shoot will begin next week at the resort and a local golf course driving range, for scenes which include a helicopter landing on a driving range. The ski resort, which is operated by a non-profit organization, decided last fall that they didn't have enough money to open the resort for the 2012-2013 ski season, which was ultimately a factor in why the production chose to shoot there. Other movies that have been filmed in the area include the teen horror film CLONED: The Recreator Chronicles.
