I have read through several threads and I wanted to see if anyone can give me their opinion on the areas of Arrowcreek and Somerset.

We have made the decision that the Reno area will soon be our new home. We plan on leaving Arizona this year. Both my husband and I work from home, we have children in elementary school and avid skiers and mountain bikers.

From what I have read, the schools are very good in both areas so either location would be great. We would like a family friendly neighborhood.

I have heard that the Reno area can get very windy, is it better in Arrowcreek vs Somerset or is it about equal?

We have looked at several homes while we were in Reno last and plan on visiting in the upcoming weeks.

I appreciate any insight/advice with these 2 areas.

Thanks for your help!

You are choosing from a couple of amazing areas and it will be a tough choice.

As for the wind --- I think it is about equal.

Both locations have good access to skiing ---- although, Arrowcreek might be a little quicker to have you on the hills at Mt. Rose. Somerset's closest resort will be Northstar and access to skiing is a bit further.

You will find great mountain biking near both locations....

As you mention, both areas are great and both will offer you what you are looking for....I think it is more about how you "feel" when you are visiting the neighborhoods and homes in the area....

Good luck with your continued search and welcome to Northern Nevada : )
