Alabama Snow Skiing

Did not try the slope but many were having a great time. If you can't travel to Colorado or Gatlinburg you need to try this slope.

My husband and I go to Cloudmont almost every year. To be honest we have not been in the winter to ski but we have been in the fall. It is absolutely breath taking and the best place ever to go and relax. If at all possible everyone to should pay a visit to Cloudmont and the surrounding area.

Cloudmont is the only place in Alabama you can ski. While most of the time the snow is manufactured, it does provide a great way to spend a day. Cloudmont is also much less expensive than larger resorts so it is a great place to learn to ski and to try out skiing for the first time without a huge... More

What a little gem tucked away on the road just past Desoto State park. No snow on the ground however snow makers stood ready to make snow at any time. Golfers where out and about.

I made reservations several months in advance hoping that our kids would be able to ski for the first time. I was told they could not guarantee skiing conditions because some years it is cold enough in December and some years it is not. As it turned out we were not able to ski but really enjoyed our two day... More

Its not Snowshoe but its a good place for beginners to get their feet wet. Its about $50 to ski/board, that fee includes gear, lift pass, and basic instruction. Cloudmont has a lot of beginning skiers/snowboarders so its a welcoming environment and you won't need to feel bad about inexperience (like you might at a bigger resort). The staff for... More

I can't actually review the skiing conditions because they ran out of rental skis for children. The place opens at 9 am and we arrived at 10 am, after a 2 hour drive. We then waited in line for one hour to buy lift tickets. Once we finally got to the window, they told us they were out of children... More

I've been skiing all over the USA, and this place is certainly no substitute for 99.9% of those places. However, my wife, 8 year old son, and I went here this afternoon and had an absolute BLAST! We loved it - not because the skiing was world class, but because it was 45 minutes from our home, a beautiful day,... More

We just returned from a great weekend getaway to Cloudmont! The staff and facility are a great jewel hidden in North Alabama, and if you live in Alabama or the surrounding area, and would like a place to take your family for a first ski adventure, our family HIGHLY recommends Cloudmont!
