Anyone know where to ski at Tug Hill this weekend (Dec. 16)? Tourathon trails? Osceola?

Excuse my ignorance, but where is Tug Hill?  Sounds like a great place to take a
field trip to.

The Tug Hill Plateau is located east of Lake Ontario between Syracuse and
Watertown, New York.  It includes parts of Oswego, Jefferson, Oneida, and
Lewis Counties and is easily accessible from I-81.  The region is not really
a plateau but is a series of uplands rising from the lake.  It gets more
snow than anywhere else in the U.S. east of the Rockies.

My grandmother lives in Turin NY, Lewis county (in the middle of Tug
Hill).  The average accumalative snow fall for the season is 125" (down
from 225" from ten years ago).

If you go there dress warm.  Two Christmas' ago it took me 2.5 hours to
start my car.  It was -30 degrees F, with no wind.

It's not uncommon to get 4 feet of snow overnight a few years ago.
