"Daddy's Home 2" Movie Filmed at Nashoba?

We were watching TV tonight, and a trailer for "Daddy's Home 2" came on - as I'm watching, they had a tubing/skiing scene - and I'm virtually positive it's from Nashoba - from the Outlook looking out on the slopes - see the picture with Mel Gibson. I googled the movie and it was filmed around Boston so I'imagem thinking that my hunch may be right. What do you think?

    That's a switch. Usually it's Calif. or Utah filling in for Vermont in movies.

    Ok if there is a screen shot of the fireplace we can nail it. Because I have one of that too.

    BTW they tube only on the other side of the mountain and it doesn't look like this.

    Those birches on the left look similar.

    Edit: Google Maps has street views all over inside the lodge. You can almost recreate this view from the movie IMHO.

    That confirms it; look at the birches near the pine in the images to the left of the trail.

    Yes. It was filmed at Nashoba. They rented out one of the spring weekdays this year.

    But...but...there's no tubing allowed on that side of the mountain! ;) ;)

    Perhaps that's why Nashoba doesn't advertise it as being shot there as they may think it could negatively impact their tubing business. Like, some people who can't separate movies from real life could see that and say that's real dangerous I'm never going tubing there.

    They used Holiday Valley, Ellicottville, and East Aurora for "Christmas in Vermont" last year. I think the only "Vermont" i see in the entire move is a shot of what i think is Stowe.
