Adrienne Schaefer | Pacific Alpine Guides


Adrienne is a Washington State native and has worked in the outdoor industry for close to 20 years. She began her career working for the National Park Service and US Forest Service as a Trails Technician and later as a Climbing Ranger on Mt. Rainier. Her love of snow eventually led her to become a professional ski patroller and avalanche dog handler at Stevens Pass. When she moved to the Methow she saw a need for women's specific programming and partnered with co-guide Steph Williams and North Cascades Mountain Guides to develop the Women's Backcountry Clinic series. When she's not guiding, Adrienne works as the Partnership Manager for Methow Trails. She has a Bachelors in Outdoor Recreation, AIARE Level 2 avalanche certification and is a current Wilderness First Responder. Adrienne lives in Winthrop with her husband John and their two boys Tye and Reid.
