“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.

Membership fees go entirely toward funding trail work, our programs and activities. There is no fee for members to participate in most WVAIA activities, and for the few exceptions, members receive a discounted fee.

Membership fees are $25/year for individuals and $50/year for a family membership. We encourage you to make an additional donation if you can.
