Location scouting at Finse: Snow locations

The film commission has been out of office location scouting at Finse the last few days. Finse has previously doubled for the North Pole, the South Pole, the Northwest Passage and Siberia, and famously for the ice planet Hoth in Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back. Star Wars used the Finse lake, the glacier and its surroundings for some climactic action scenes - arguably some of the Star Wars series' most memorable sequences.
