A place to do business.

Business is booming in the Sierra Region of northern Nevada.

Since 2010, 69 companies have expanded or established business here, with a total economic impact of nearly $1.7 billion to the Region.


A place to call home.

Northern Nevada is home to 4 of the state's top 7 high schools and to the state's only Tier 1 University.  More than 50,000 students are enrolled in  bachelor's, associate's and trade-related education.


A place to play.

With 253 days of sunshine each year, 12 alpine and cross country resorts within an hours' drive, unlimited scenic hiking, biking and equestrian trails, and Lake Tahoe (the second most beautiful lake in the world) at our gate, the Sierra Region of Northern Nevada is simply A.Great.Place.
