Keystone, CO- The New York State Snowmobile Association was recognized at the International Snowmobile Congress, being held June 10 - 13 in Keystone, CO, for holding two "Take a Friend Snowmobiling" events which raised the visibility of snowmobiling in New York State.

In December of 2013 and March of 2014, NYSSA was pleased to take Governor Andrew Cuomo and many other key State legislators and agency leaders on enjoyable snowmobile rides.

NYSSA partnered with the Governor and his staff on organizing and locating an event. NYSSA provided extra sleds and equipment, thelocal clubs provided a well groomed and marked trails, and the Governor’s office providedinvitations to public officials and the media. Media coverage of the initial event went national and the second event played more in the state as part of the Adirondack Winter Challenge, a celebration of all of NY’s winter sports. This is the first time ever that we were able to get a Governor to actually go out and ride. What we learned is that he really liked it!

The benefits to the sport of snowmobiling in New York, and indeed extending to other Northeast states, are many.

  • The “I [snowmobile] New York” publicity campaign on television, and in print advertising is drawing in brand-new riders who have never tried snowmobiling before.
  • Snowmobile rental businesses in New York and beyond saw an immediate uptick in business.
  • Snowmobilers outside of New York are requesting information about our trails, and presumably planning trips to New York for next season.
  • We’ve noticed a bump in early-season registrations, which may be attributed to sales of new snowmobiles.
