Miles Brubacher
Active in the DPS: 1957-1959
Active in DPS SPS Ski Mountaineers
A founding member of the SPS and former chair Miles also was active with the Ski Mountaineers. In the SPS he was instrumental in expanding the list of qualifying peaks the linchpin to the section's rapidly growing outings program. It was only three weeks after the SPS's first scheduled trip that Miles joined Frank Sanborn in leading a scheduled trip to Maggie Mtn. Miles was a skilled leader on ice and snow as well as rock but he also believed strongly in introductory trips. His involvement with Angeles Chapter ended when he moved to Hawaii. He now lives in Canmore Alberta Canada and seasonally returns to California.-Jerry Keating
