Many movie-going skiers and snowboarders have been delighted to learn that many scenes from the 24th James Bond 007 film, Spectre, were shot in Soelden, Austria, a top ski resort in the Tyrol region. In fact, the resort’s ultra-modern Ice Q restaurant, located high on Gaislachkogl peak, was heavily featured in the film. Several other action scenes were shot on the resort’s slopes, in the gondola and on a the panoramic glacial road. Spectre was released in U.S. theaters on Nov. 6, 2015, so there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the snowbound action and classic Bond lines.
