It is no secret that the construction industry in the Reno community has been hit hard. That is all about to change. Tesla brings construction back to Reno thanks to its gigafactory build going on in the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center.
At its peak in 2008, there were as many as 24,000 construction jobs in the Reno area. Currently, there are [...]
Anyone who lives in the Reno community knows how amazingly lucky we are to live near some of the best skiing in the country. Reno residents need only drive an hour or two south to visit the gorgeous ski resorts of Heavenly, Kirkwood, Squaw Valley or Mt Rose Ski Tahoe. In fact, Mt Rose Ski Tahoe opened up in a limited capacity just last week [...]
Last Friday, November 7th, Mt Rose officially opened up to skiers in the Reno community and beyond. This is the earliest start to the Reno ski season in in a decade. The open terrain may be limited but that just means that beginners will have a nice patch of land to hone their skills. It is also a great time to mention the UNR Ski Swap 20 [...]

This both helps our local Reno economy and lowers our carbon footprint. D [...]
Reno has seen some big changes lately. Tech giant Apple set up a data center here. Amazon and Zulily call Reno home for their operations. Currently, Tesla is gearing up to build their Gigafacility just outside the city limits. Now, we find Reno giving it the old college try by expanding the University’s campus into the downtown area [...]
And then there was one. We’ve spoken a lot lately about how the Tesla move means big business for Reno. Their five million square foot Gigafactory will supply all the lithium ion batteries for their electric cars. More than 6500 jobs will come directly from the plant once it is up and running.
