Adirondack Brewery in Lake George has come up with a clever marketing campaign that features regional athletes and outdoor enthusiasts on its packages. The one shown here recognizes Ron Konowitz, the only person known to have skied all forty-six of the High Peaks. Ron, who lives in Keene, is president of the Adirondack Powder Skier Association, an organization that is pushing for more ski trails in the Adirondacks and for the right to maintain natural ski glades. Ron, a retired schoolteacher, also is the coordinator of the local fire department’s rescue squad.
