    Hi Max,

    We are implied in a similar project, at this very moment. So, we have all possible options all over the world. Of course, the cost effective is Romania but there is the same problem as for all the other ones – the question mark for snow – once there is a transition weather for both: North and South hemispheres.

    Best wishes,

    Hi, just sendt this mesage to Bill Hayes: Yes we have snow, go and have a look at web: http://www.skiinfo.no/index.jsp,
    and look at the “web cams”, and “snow report” (at the heading)
    And I think out of your description, is that Trysilfjellet, might be the place, see: http://www.skiinfo.no/webcams/detail_big.jsp?product.skiinfo.webcams.WEBCAMID=2461&product.skiinfo.DESTID=ENOTRYSI (more snow in november)
    I will follow up later with some pictures.
    Attached is our prod. guide. At the last page you´ll find a shortlist of film service companies that also might help you.
    Please keep me posted.

    Greetings from snowy Breckenridge, Colorado. We received 14 inches of snow last weekend and more is on the way. Of course, like everywhere else, we are in the early season so accumulations are just beginning. We are usually in good shape for snow in November depending on when and what your needs are. Please let me know if can provide you additional information or be of assistance. Thanks.

    Hi Max,

    We have lots of snow here in Aspen, it snowed all weekend & has also been snowing all day today. We also expect additional snow over next few days – so our season is off to a great start. If you are interested in seeing any location reference photo’s please email me directly & I will send you a link.
    Best!

    Max, here in Ukraine we have snow in Carpathians in November. If you want pictures and sceneries, we’ll be glad to provide it. The shooting prices and prefessionalism of production in Ukraine would be a pleasant surprise. Please contact us at fabro@2332.com.ua or cherniavsky@2332.com.ua

    Max,

    Montana’s Big Sky area may very well have the snow you are looking for in the middle-to-end of November. However, each year fluctuates depending on the weather. Generally, most of the ski areas open up around the Thanksgiving holiday. Also most ski areas with access roads are in alpine locations that are forested. The Big Sky area is abundant with fir trees and has many winding roads which have been used for commercials. Other locations that might work include Cooke City, Bridger Bowl, Whitefish, and Bridger Canyon (on Hwy 86). Click the following link to view photos of these areas (http://www.reel-scout.com/mt/package_cover.aspx?id=33&key=645DEC1C). Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

    Thanks,

    Dear Max,

    We had most snow than usual this year in Patagonia, Argentina. Sky resorts are still opening (imagine skying in the Spring) and the are is known for its fir trees (conifers).

    We have experience filming in the snow for the likes of Nissan, Chivas Regal, J. Crew and American Eagle.

    Please do not hesitate to contact our Buenos Aires office at ba@redcreek.info or ivan@redcreek.info
