Vancouver: Where Mountains Meet City

The Mountain Between Us tells the harrow story of two strangers who survive a plane crash in a remote, snow-covered mountain range and must rely on each other to make it through their ordeal alive. Starring Academy Award-winner Kate Winslet and Idris Elba, the romantic thriller is anticipated to be a box office hit with plenty of fireworks between the main characters, a compelling survival story and dramatic scenery – and those familiar with British Columbia will certainly recognize the latter.


Much of Mountain was filmed in Vancouver – including Vancouver International Airport and the historic Gastown neighbourhood – and the mountains of Invermere. The cast and crew visited both regions in December 2016, and had nothing but praise for both destinations. In fact, during the movie’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Winslet and Elba lauded the destinations in separate interviews.

Tourism Vancouver has partnered with the Vancouver Film Commission and Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce to launch a “Mountain Meets City” sweepstakes that will give one winner the opportunity to explore this stunning area that won over the cast of The Mountain Between Us.
