The synopsis for tonight’s movie reads: “When Carly, secretly a princess, plans Snowden Peak’s Snow Ball with Jesse, their attraction is undeniable. In planning the event, the two make the gala a fundraiser to help infuse much needed resources into the resort. But without a celebrity draw, investors aren’t interested, and Snowden Peak is put up for sale. Will Carly allow her royal identity to be exposed to save the resort?”

‘A Winter Princess’ Was Filmed at the Big White Ski Resort & Other Parts of Kelowna

Much of the movie was filmed at A Big White Ski Resort in Kelowna, BC, Canada, according to Instagram posts from cast. Lara Gilchrist shared this post, tagged at the ski resort:

The movie was originally called Snow Princess before the title was changed.

Big White Ski Resort is located 35 miles southeast of Kelowna in the southern interior of British Columbia. It’s on Big White Mountain, the highest summit in the Okanagan Highland.

Director Allan Harmon told Kelowna Now about the movie: “This is a perfect location for this film and the producers, cast and crew have nothing but great things to say about the management at Big White Resort and how accommodating they have been… Okanagan hospitality is one of the great assets the Okanagan has to offer production companies as a location for their film and television productions.”

The movie was filmed in November, and a big snowfall at the resort was perfectly timed.
