Meet your coach

Brittany Aäe is a mountain runner, alpine climber, and endurance coach based in the Methow Valley, Washington.

Brittany has practiced alpine climbing for ten years. She seeks to become a well-rounded mountain traveler. In pursuit of that lifetime goal she's led four international expeditions on some of the worlds highest peaks, honed water ice skills on the massive drips of the Canadian Rockies, climbed long alpine rock routes in the North Cascades, completed multiple winter ascents of Rainier, speed climbed and skiied local peaks, and completed twenty-five solo, unsupported ultra-distance mountain runs. She continued progressing on ski, foot, and fingers in the mountains through all forty weeks of pregnancy. On rest days she flyfishes and stalks grouse with gusto.

Brittany holds a Wilderness First Responder, AIARE Avalanche II, and a BA in Political Science from the University of Washington. Her professional experience includes a decade planning and implementing large-scale public health programs on four continents.
