Biography

Robert Livermore attended Harvard and in April 1931, he and a group of Harvard skiers became among the first to ski from the summit over the headwall of Tuckerman’s Ravine. They later founded the Hochgebirge Ski Club, which was instrumental in developing ski racing in New England. In 1939, Livermore joined Charles “Minnie” Dole in Europe and they were impressed with the Finnish Army’s ski troops. This led them to meet with General George Marshall and together the group convinced the US War Department to establish the 87th Infantry Mountain Division, which later became the famed 10th Mountain Division. Livermore’s son, David “Spark” Livermore, also became a skier, and worked for almost 20 years as a Race Hill Supervisor at Deer Valley Resort in Utah.
