Welcome to Cloudcroft
Nestled almost 20 miles up in the mountains east of Alamogordo, Cloudcroft makes a pleasant escape year-round. In winter there's snow tubing and snowmobiling across powdery meadows. In summer Cloudcroft offers refreshing respite from the desert heat, plus awesome hiking and biking. The town itself is a quaint place to wander, with some early-19th-century buildings, a low-key mountain vibe and a historic resort hotel, but most visitors are here to play in the surrounding peaks and forests.
