Reno Information

Reno is "The Biggest Little City in the World". It has a desert climate, which means that it is warmer during the day but turns cold at night. It looks like it will be party sunny with some rain. High temperatures in the 60s (15 to 20 Celsius) and lows just above freezing. Reno is the main airport for Late Tahoe, which is very much worth a visit. Here is more information on Reno for your stay at SPLASH.
