Brett Trainor

Mountain Mentor

As the Co-Founder of Mountain Mentors, an all-female alpine mentorship program in Vancouver & the Sea to Sky corridor, Brett is passionate about empowering the next generation of female outdoor leaders through relationship facilitation and community building. Since Mountain Mentors’ creation in 2016, 126 women have participated in its unique programs in backcountry skiing, splitboarding, mountain biking, and climbing. Mountain Mentors’ work has been featured in Mountain Life Media, MEC, & various local news sources.
By skis, bike, or on foot, you can find Brett exploring BC’s backcountry with her tribe of adventurous ladies (and sometimes her boyfriend Max). Growing up as a competitive nordic ski racer on Vancouver Island, Brett now considers herself a solid recreationalist and social-entrepreneur, currently pursuing her MBA at SFU. Having lived and studied in Norway and East Africa, Brett is especially grateful to call North Vancouver home, where craft beer and tacky dirt are never more than a 10-minute pedal away. This being said, those Norwegians sure know how to make a mean waffle…
