I LOVE the Reno area, my hubby and I (and baby) are looking to move there at some point, we've both interviewed with different companies several times in the past few years just have not been lucky enough to get the jobs.
What we love about it, is the mountains and yes while the winters are cold, the city itself doesn't get a ton of snow (USUALLY there are exceptions), but you can drive to the snow and in the spring/summer/fall there are several lakes in the area, and even though Reno does have a lot of gambling it's actually a very family friendly city. Out east of town (towards Sparks) is a neat family fun center where you can easily spend a day (or two) with water sports, picnic areas, games, etc.... If you need a realtor, we've made friends with a fantastic lady! Who also happens to have elementary aged kids who I could put you in touch with, just send me a message here and I can get you her info.
