Alpine Club - Vancouver Island

Welcome to the Alpine Club of Canada - Vancouver Island Section.

As you will have noticed we have quietly launched the new website.  The main difference apart from the new look is an improved schedule/calendar system and an up-to-date backend. Hopefully most of the content on the old site is still available.  We are still working on migrating some features and trying improve others.  Please send any feedback to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Founded in 1912, our Section offers a wide range of mountain-related activities, from local hikes to challenging climbs in the Vancouver Island mountains, Coast ranges, Rockies and beyond. These trips are all listed in our schedule, which is provided for up to six months and updated regularly. We also put on summer hiking/climbing camps and winter ski/snowshoe camps, and offer a number of subsidized mountain education courses and workshops, including ice axe handling, crevasse rescue, avalanche safety, and introductory mountaineering. We have a monthly newsletter, the Island Bushwhacker, and we put on monthly social events with slideshow presentations on mountain-related topics.

You don't have to be an experienced climber to join the club - all that's really required is a love of the mountains. If the mountains are an important part of your life, or you would like them to be, there's a place in the club for you!
