If you have never been to Reno, let us tell you: it is nestled at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains with easy access to the Pacific Crest Trail. We are just 30 minutes from beautiful Lake Tahoe offering most any water sport you can imagine: fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding in addition to skiing and snowboarding (where many Olympic athletes do their training). We are the home of a dynamic art and event scene: Artown, Hot August Nights, Street Vibrations, Rib Cook off, Balloon Races ? and that's just July ? September! Humidity is low ? so temperatures remain (or at least feel) moderate.
