The movie the Mountain Between Us was to be filmed in the high alpine to the West of Invermere. The locations were in extreme glaciated terrain and had numerous hazards.
Methods and Solution
Canadian Rescue Systems was contracted to provide emergency medical and rescue support for the crew and actors during the movie shoot. Our staff worked directly with both Kate Winslet and Idris Elba.
The filming was a great success. Temperatures of -35 degrees Celsius and harsh weather were encountered. Ironically the story is about survival and adaptation – this is also what was needed to make the behind scenes a success.
