Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival is a much-looked-forward-to community event full of exciting outdoor films from around the world. Held in Hope at New Hope Cinema, guests can see the “Best of the Fest,” spanning mountain climbing, skiing, paddling, biking and many other mountain topics.


We are proud to host two Bird Blitzes each year: Skagit Valley Bird Blitz in May, and Manning Park Bird Blitz in June. Established in 1983, the Manning Park Bird Blitz is one of BC’s longest-running bird counts, building on a growing database that now spans over 40 years of sightings.


Celebrated on the fourth Sunday of September, World Rivers Day is a celebration of the world’s waterways. It highlights the many values of our rivers, strives to increase public awareness, and encourages the improved stewardship of all rivers around the world. Hope Mountain Centre, with a parallel focus on environmental stewardship, found a natural partnership with World Rivers Day and has supported the communication work for decades assisting their global communications, and hosting our own annual guided paddle event along the mighty Fraser River.


We are all about increasing knowledge about and access to the outdoors. Having the skills and experience to do so safely and responsibly is key, which is why we offer a variety of skills development courses each year in partnership with experts in each area including Avalanche Safety Training, wilderness survival, wilderness first aid, navigation, traditional plant identification, mushroom identification, backcountry cooking, and Leave No Trace. Many skills are also learned in the guided adventures we host each year.


Step outside with us! HMCOL hosts a variety of guided mountain adventures every year including hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, winter camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, birding, Stó:lō archaeology tours, outdoor photography, and more.
