Hollywood North Expanded: Visit Fernie, BC to Take a Spin in a 'Hot Tub Time Machine'
Fernie Alpine Resort is the official filming site for Hot Tub Time Machine! The amazing and talented John Cusack came to Fernie in Spring 2009 to both star in and produce: Hot Tub Time Machine – a $60 million MGM film project about four friends (John Cusack, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, and Rob Corddry) who take a relaxing dip in a ski resort hot tub and end up back in 1986.
The massive film crew was on site at Fernie Alpine Resort over the course of a few weeks, turning the plaza and ski base back into a winter wonderland once the resort was closed for the season – only in Hollywood! Being set in 1986, this retro ski movie brought out loads of throwback references with retro-cool cars and one-piece ski suites. It drew out hundreds of extras, many of which were locals, who revel in their 3 seconds of fame now that the movie has hit the big screen and landed a top 3 position in the box office for opening weekend (Friday March 26).
