"To follow one's heart takes deep courage, which not many people have. Rob had it. Rob could've thrived in any pursuit he wanted, but skiing was his first love and he carved a successful career out of it, as an athlete, a guide, and partner in a ski company. He was at the top. He had courage that most will never know," says Philip Drake, friend to Rob Liberman, 35.
