The sign may have since fallen over but the mess is not forgotten as crews will soon clean-up what’s left over from last winter’s filming.

Plans in place to turn The Grey set green again

Hikers growing impatient over the mess up Hudson Bay Mountain from last winter’s filming of The Grey will be relieved to know that in the next week or two, volunteers together with members from the film crew will be packing up the mess.

Hikers growing impatient over the mess up Hudson Bay Mountain from last winter’s filming of The Grey will be relieved to know that in the next week or two, volunteers together with members from the film crew will be packing up the mess.

A big job lies ahead for the group. There is some general debris left over from the main base camp for the film and props, from airplane pieces to clothing and suitcases, remain at the set area.

The clean-up is being lead by Dominic Main, with the locations department for the production company which produced the film. He’s working in collaboration with Hudson Bay Mountain (HBM) and local interest groups.

He’s welcomed the inclusion of groups such as the B.V. Backpackers and the ATV Club.

Hudson Bay Mountain Mountain Operations person Mark Grabowski said that the clean-up would have occurred much earlier if not for such a late snow melt on the mountain.

Main said that he and HBMhave been in communication every month since the crew left.

The push in the industry, he explained, is to keep the land as they found it, or better.

In 10 years working in the industry he said he’s never left a location in bad shape.

Nancy Treiber, Hudson Bay Mountain general manager, said that the company and the Integrated Land Management Bureau have bonds in place to ensure clean-up. That means that there is money committed that even if the clean up didn’t happen, resources are available for alternate clean-up plans.

Anyone who wants to help in the clean-up can call the mountain at 1-866-665-4299.
