Vancouver Island Mountain Centre
The Vancouver Island Mountain Centre (VIMC) provides year-round, dorm-style accommodation for groups of up to 40 people.
VIMC operates as a non profit and is located on Mount Washington overlooking Strathcona Park. This unique facility is available for use by a wide variety of user groups and is intended to help support organized mountain sports, school, youth, adult, senior, and special interest groups that are visiting Mount Washington.
Groups of all types are welcome to inquire.
Outdoor Education and Adventure
Outdoor Adventure Programs consist of a series of focus areas where groups can choose based on their educational and developmental goals. All of the focus areas revolve around fitness for life principles, personal empowerment through skill development and knowledge acquisition plus an understanding, appreciation and respect for our fragile environment. Choose from programs such as Wilderness Survival Skills, Intro to Biathlon, Snow Cave Building, and Scavenger Hikes.
Kitchen use is available.It is the responsibility of the user group to make sure the dishes they used are clean and placed back in their appropriate spot and all counters, cupboards and floors are clean upon their departure. Groups are responsible for the cost of any cleaning (other than normal vacuuming and mopping) and damage or missing items. It is also the responsibility of the user group to inquire if they are unsure of how to operate certain appliances in the kitchen.
The Vancouver Island Mountain Society is a non-profit organization that needs everyone's support to be successful. With your first program or accommodation booking (excluding Fitness Centre drop-ins) there will be a membership fee added to your total price. This yearly fee gives you and/or your group a membership in VIMSS, which supports local mountain sports athletes both through grants and subsidized access to the V.I. Mountain Centre.
