Governor Andrew M. Cuomo launched a $4.5 million winter tourism campaign this week by going snowmobiling in Tug Hill.

There are 10,300 miles of snowmobile trails throughout New York—more than Vermont, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, and more than Massachusetts and Michigan combined, according to Cuomo's press office. Since 2011, the state has spent more than $11 million for trail maintenance and development, an investment that has helped generate $868 million in economic revenue. Approximately 90,000 New York households snowmobile.

Also the New York Snowmobile Authority for places to visit, stay, eat and rent snowmobiles. 

“This season, we welcome visitors from around the world to experience winter in Upstate New York,” Governor Cuomo said. “The North Country region is unmatched in its natural beauty and now offers new recreational trails forsnowmobiling and a wide variety of other activities for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages to explore. As one of the biggest and growing employers in the state, the tourism industry continues to play a significant role in boosting our economy. With our new ad campaign, we want more New Yorkers and tourists to come visit regions like Tug Hill to see what winter adventures await in the Empire State.”
