Mission Statement

“To encourage all healthful exercise and afford facilities thereto.”

Such was the language used in 1888 to describe the mission of the Waterville Valley Athletic & Improvement Association when it was formed by Waterville Valley residents. In the 21st century, WVAIA strives to preserve the spirit of the founders, continuing traditions of hiking, trail stewardship, and croquet, encouraging all to enjoy healthy, safe, outdoor activity in Waterville Valley and environs.
