The Hallmark Channel’s “Christmas in Tahoe” premieres on Sunday, November 28, at 6 p.m. Eastern. Encores will air throughout the season. The movie stars Laura Osnes, Kyle Selig, Pat Monahan, and George Lopez. Read on to learn all about where the movie was filmed, the cast, and hear the two songs performed in the movie.


‘Christmas in Tahoe’ Was Filmed in Canada, Including Vancouver

Although the movie is called “Christmas in Tahoe,” the film was actually shot in the Vancouver region of Canada.

In an interview on Audacity’s 96.5 TIC (Hartford), for the show “Christine &  Salt,” Pat Monahan said that no one could really visit the set while it was filming.

“It might be hard (to visit) because we’re gonna shoot it in Vancouver, and Canada’s being pretty tough right now,” he said.

Monahan said that Train’s 2015 holiday album, “Christmas in Tahoe,” was turned into this new movie. You can hear Monahan talk about the new movie at 1:55 in the video interview at this link.

You can see all of Osnes’ photos and videos that she shared on her Instagram Story while filming the movie here. Here are a few screenshots from her stories.

Some of the locations she tagged while filming included Whistler and Abbotsford.

She wrote about the movie, “An extra special thanks to producers Kim Arnott & @mr_terrible1, and our entire cast & crew for fostering such professionalism, positivity, and safety on set. Grateful & giddy.”


Monahan Performs Two Songs in the Movie

Monahan performs two songs in the movie — “Shake Up Christmas” and a new song, “Mittens.”

Monahan said in a press statement about the movie: “Ever since having made our Christmas album, Christmas in Tahoe, it’s been a dream of mine to bring it to life on the screen. Hallmark has now made that dream a reality. I loved being able to not only act but also perform ‘Shake Up Christmas’ and our new original song, ‘Mittens’ in the movie. I know that everyone is going to feel the love and warmth of the holiday season when they see this heartfelt film.”
