Why We Exist

The Vancouver Island Mountain Centre opened its doors on a brilliantly sunny day on December 8th, 2011 at Mount Washington, BC, Canada. The Centre operates under the mandate to promote fitness for life principles; engage Vancouver Island athletes and emerging athletes in mountain sports, recreation, training and fitness; and to encourage public participation in mountain sports, personal fitness and outdoor education. The creation of the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre (VIMC) offers new opportunities to enhance the lives of not only current and future athletes but also members of the surrounding community by providing access to a public fitness centre, meeting rooms and dorm style group accommodation all under one roof.
