Bob Livermore was inspired to be a skier from childhood but did not really get to pursue the sport until he was a freshman at Harvard and came under the teaching of Otto Schneibs.  He founded the first alpine ski club in the United States, the "Stem Like Hell Club" in 1930.  With Schneibs and others he spawned the idea for the famed "Inferno" races at Mount Washington's Tuckerman Ravine.

He was a very competitive ski racer through the 1930's, good enough to be selected to the U.S. Olympic ski team in 1936.  A member of the 10th Mountain Division he was active in the National Ski Patrol right into the 1950's as badge holder #6.
