Sunridge is a small community of homes just above Galena. The setting is high Sierras, on the flanks of Mount Rose at about 6,500' in elevation, the temperatures can be 15 degrees cooler than the hot valley floor in summer. Reno boasts over 250 sunny days a year and this elevation gets cold enough for accumulating snow events in most Sierra storms. Sunridge is a small development located off Mt. Rose Highway about 5 miles from Mt. Rose Ski Area, 10 miles from Sierra Summit with world class shopping, dining, movie cinemas and seasonal farmers market Tuesdays and Saturdays, 15 miles from North Lake Tahoe and 20 miles from the Reno-Tahoe Airport. Top ranking public schools Hunsberger Elementary School and Galena High School, along with private schools including Sage Ridge School serving 5th-12th grades, Bishop Manogue High School, Our Lady of the Snows, Brookfield School and Mountain View Montessori School serving preK-8th grade.
