In East Texas, we "hill up" potatoes more to prevent green spuds (light causes the potato to produce chlorophyll and also solanine) and improve production than damage from frost. Frost damage is best done as prevention i.e., planting at the right time to avoid having shoots vulnerable to frosts.

Matter of fact, I just hilled my potatoes up this very day.

We also hill up to keep the spuds from growing green, it's just that we also do it to guard against frost.
