We stayed in Cloudcroft last week of March as part of a Carlsbad/Guadalupe/Las Cruces hiking vacation. Cloudcroft was nearly deserted (ski area closed) but still very alpine and full of snow. This hike was a great contrast to rest of desert hikes - all crisp, cold, snowy, and evergreen. The views were not very apparent from what you would see from the road.
