The Tug Hill Plateau is an 
upland region 
in upstate New York in the USA, famous for heavy winter snow. The Tug Hill Region is west of the Adirondack Mountains and about 50 miles due east of Lake Ontario.  Although the region is and has traditionally been known as the Tug Hill Plateau since it is flat on top, it is actually not a plateau. Technically, the Tug Hill could more accurately be called a cuesta since it is actually composed of sedimentary rocks that tip up on one side, rising from about 350 feet on the west to over 2,000 feet in the east.

The Tug Hill Region is noted for its extremely deep snow levels in winter, situated in the center of the lake effect snow belt that flows from across Lake Ontario. This region receives the heaviest snowfall in the eastern United States. It is not at all unusual for the Tug Hill Plateau to receive in excess of 4 feet of snow in a single overnight snowstorm. You can also find patches of snow still on the ground on the heavily forested plateau well into June or later. In the winter months the Tug Hill Region is a popular center for snowmobiling and cross country skiing.
