Snow can be found each year at Cloudmont, a family-owned resort in northeastern Alabama, when overnight temperatures drop to 28 degrees or colder, which allows snow to be made at the resort. Since snow is typically not found in Alabama, family members operate up to eight snow machines that manufacture the powdery substance. Great for beginners and intermediate skiers and snow boarders, Cloudmont Ski Resort contains two one thousand foot, beginner/intermediate slopes. Two “pony lifts” take skiers to the top of the slopes that have an elevation of 1,800 feet and a vertical rise of 150 feet.
Ski equipment rental is available on a first come, first serve basis, and a variety of packages, which include equipment, lift ticket and a beginner lesson, are available to purchase ranging from $28 to $55 per person. The cost for a snowboard package is $55 per person, and for those who own ski equipment, lift and slope ticket packages are available from $18 to $33 per person.
