ACSA announces 2019 Snowmobiler of the Year
At the 51st International Snowmobile Congress, Greg Hiles from DeSmet, South Dakota was named the ACSA Snowmobiler of the Year. Hiles has been active in organized snowmobiling for over 20 years.
Hiles has been actively involved with the Town and Country Snowdrifter snowmobile club, serving in many positions and coordinating several club activities. Hiles has also served in several positions for the South Dakota Snowmobile Association and is currently serving has the President of the American Council of Snowmobile Associations.
Because of the positions Hiles has held, he understands the fundraising required. He has assisted with many fundraising activities from raffles to Monday Night Football to Live and Silent Auctions.
Greg’s level of attendance, participation and involvement demonstrates his passion and dedication to snowmobiling and efforts to protect public access for all to enjoy. Greg has participated in many of the Washington Fly-Ins for the snowmobile community as well as the International Snowmobile Council.
Snowmobiling has been a major part of the Hiles’ household. From riding a two up with one daughter sleeping in front of Greg and the other daughter behind him to being able to ride with his two oldest grandsons. It all comes down to family, friends and fun for the Hiles family!
Many high school students spent several spring break trips riding in the Big Horns. Whether it was riding in the meadows or digging out a sled, some of these kids, now adults, still refer to these trips as ome of their favorite memories. Family, friends and fun!
South Dakota Snowmobile President Jon LaFrambois said, “Volunteers like Hiles are the backbone to snowmobiling. From the clubs to the trails to the political side, Hiles has always responded to all requests to be the representative!” Family, Friends and Fun! photo is Greg with his wife, Diane.
The American Council of Snowmobile Associations provides national leadership and coordination to advance the efforts of all organizations who promote responsible snowmobiling across the United States.
ACSA announces 2019 Young Snowmobiler of the Year
At the 51st International Snowmobile Congress, Riley Johnson from South Dakota was named the ACSA Young Snowmobiler of the Year.
Starting at a very young age, Riley attended club meetings and events. Johnson has also participated in many South Dakota Snowmobile Association (SDSA) rides and events. He is currently Treasurer of the youth group, Youth Empowerment Through Involvement in Snowmobiling (YETIS).
In addition to snowmobile activities, Johnson is involved in high school sports, church youth group and helping out on the family farm. Johnson also holds some part time jobs in his spare time!
Johnson learned safety first when he started riding his own sled at 4 years old. Johnson says, “Safety is never optional. It needs to be the first priority.” Snowmobiling is not just a sport, it’s a way of life for Johnson. But he fears for the future. “We need to get young people involved so they understand the importance of organized snowmobiling. “If we don’t get them involved, we could continue to lose access to riding areas and trails. I want to do all I can to make sure we can go snowmobiling as a family like I did when I was growing up.”
“Having youth involvement like Riley is the future of snowmobiling” stated SDSA President Jon Laframboise. “With youth involvement and encouragement from young snowmobilers like Riley, our future is bright! Passionate snowmobilers, especially young snowmobilers, are the future leaders of our sport.”

South Dakotans were at the DC Fly In this past week. The DC Fly – in is well attended by leaders in snowmobiling across the United States. It gives our elected representatives (SDSA and other state associations) a chance to visit with the people who make the legislation that affects those of us who enjoy snowmobiling!
Thank you for taking your time to represent us!
