Still bracing the cold air of Canada’s western Alberta province, the production team for Inception hauls on towards the finish line. According to The Free Press, this past week explosive teams on the ski slopes at Fernie Alpine Resort utilized avalanche bombs to set off, you guessed it, avalanches being filmed by Christopher Nolan’s crew.
â€œWe have been working with the movie crew at Nakiska and heard they needed to film an avalanche and they were having a tough time finding a place with snow,â€ he said. â€œSo when we mentioned that our Fernie Snow Safety team was doing our avy control work they asked if it would be OK to go along.
â€œWe have had lots of snow – in fact the most snow in the five Alpine Bowls of Fernie Alpine Resort since 1984!
Production on Inception is supposedly wrapping up this week or next. It will then enter the all important post-production phase for several months before hitting theaters July 16, 2010. Visit The Free Press to see the full story.
