A group of local citizens collaborated and developed a new website called McCloudSki.com to promote McCloud as the Mount Shasta Ski Park Resort Town.
Envisioning McCloud as THE Mt. Shasta Ski Park Resort Town and a great destination for winter travelers, McCloud business owners, graphic artists, marketers, and web developers collaborated to develop a campaign to get more visitors to stay in McCloud during the winter months.

Take a nap in the hammock on our spacious deck, or wait until nightfall and go stargazing! Wildlife is plentiful in the area and becomes part of your extended family during your stay. At night, leave the windows open and listen to the nearby gurgling brook! This is an outdoor-lovers dream with so much so see and do nearby! Alternatively, you can settle in a get cozy with a great book by the fire.

Thanks to a grant awarded by The Ford Family Foundation, the Tourism working group participated in a two-day process in October which identified strategies and actions that will serve the tourist-based businesses in McCloud, as well as the community at large. Rural Development Initiatives (RDI) led the process. Meadow Barr and Robin Singler served as session trainees and therefore will be able to aid other Network working groups in a similar strategic planning process.
