Cloudcroft is a remote ski town in the mountains of New Mexico where Percy Jackson, Thalia Grace, Zoë Nightshade, Bianca di Angelo, and Grover Underwood stopped for a while in The Titan's Curse because they had no mode of transport to get down from Cloudcroft.

Cloudcroft has a school, tourist tours, cafes, ski cabins, and a grocery store. The store sells rubber rats, coffee, hot chocolate, and blueberry muffins.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

The Titan's Curse

After Zoë, Grover, and Thalia go to get food, the group is ambushed by skeleton warriors. While fleeing the enemy, Grover feels the wild calling him, makes the birds on his cup real, and an Erymanthian boar flies out of the woods and attacks everything. Percy and Thalia jump on its back and dangle some food in front of its face to get it to run west so they could save Artemis and Annabeth.

The town being near the cave that the wild god, Pan hid in, is why Grover felt the "Call of the Wild".
