My name is Brianna Crotteau, and I am truly honored and thrilled to be the 2023-2024 AWSC Miss Snowflake! I am from Rice Lake, WI and recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls with a degree in Agricultural Business and Dairy Science. This past June, I was hired as a full-time Dairy Plant Project Coordinator in River Falls. I also work part-time at Gehl Acres Farm in Cameron, Wisconsin. At the farm, we milk 120-registered Holsteins and tend to about 850 acres of crops. I love my time at Gehl Acres. When I’m not working, you can find me out in my deer stand, on the lake, at the gym, or enjoying some beautifully groomed snowmobile trails with my family and friends. I also spend a lot of time with my community involvements such as the Chetek Snow Flyers Snowmobile Club, Barron County Farm Bureau, and the Barron County Youth Shooting Sports Program.

I have been involved with snowmobiling for my entire life and I am very thankful for the opportunities I’ve had to participate in this awesome sport! My love for snowmobiling began as soon as I was big enough to fit into my first helmet, which was about three years old. I was gifted with my first snowmobile when I was fifteen, and I thought that was the best day ever! From that day on, I have become more involved with volunteering and lending a hand to the Chetek Snow Flyers. I have helped with a lot of trail work, such as trail clean up, trail signage, working with landowners, and my new favorite, grooming trails. Some of my other involvements include decorating our groomers for parades, fundraising efforts for the club, open house events, and member recruitment.

This year is going to be so much fun, and I can't wait to visit many of the AWSC clubs across the state. Each AWSC club and member has a story to tell, and I look forward to hearing those stories while representing the AWSC as the 2023-2024 Miss Snowflake.

I would also like to thank my awesome support team. My mom, my dad, my sister, and the rest of my family have been by my side since the very beginning, and I wouldn't be where I am today without each of them. Aside from my family, I want to recognize the Chetek Snow Flyers Snowmobile Club and all the great members I have been able to work with throughout the years. Lastly, I would like to thank my amazing Barron County community. All of you have supported me on this journey and I am so grateful.

Thank you to all the Miss Snowflake Sponsors: Donahue Super Sports, Braap Wraps, Floe International, DSG Outerwear, K+M Motorsports, Unique Signs and Designs, and Tyler's Backcountry.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any events you would like me to attend!
