Make sure your Mac meets Lion's requirements > Apple - OS X Lion - Technical specifications

Maybe because Snow Leopard wasn't designed with support for iCloud in it? You can't use iCloud with iOS 4.X.X either, you need to upgrade it to iOS 5.X.X.
Lion only costs $30 from the app store anyways, it's not a huge investment.

I have 10.6.8 and I cant access iCloud. Please guide me what can be done
Though most of iCloud's facilities cannot be accessed on 10.6.8 you can set mail up manually and there is a hack (see below) which some people have used successfully to enable calendar syncing. You cannot sync Contacts or Bookmarks, or use the other iCloud facilities.
- You will be able to access email and calendars on the iCloud website at http://icloud.com provided your browser is reasonably up-to-date.
- You will not be able to sync contacts or bookmarks from a pre-Lion Mac.
- You will be able to enter the server settings for email manually in the Mail application and access your email.
- You will not be able to sync your calendars directly.
- Some people have been able to set up calendar syncing by using the method detailed here - this is an unsupported hack and may not be reliable, and may stop working at some future point. BusyCal is an iCal-like calendar application with extra facilities: it can sync with the iCloud Calendar while running on Leopard, Snow Leopard or Lion.
- There appears to be no method of syncing contacts (though Address Book on a Mac can be synced with Google or Yahoo address books - I don't know how reliable this is).
