Cascades just 90 miles from Seattle.
I'm also familiar with resort areas such as

scenic communities and excellent sailing, and the
gateway to the spectacular North Cascades National Park and home
to the country's premier recreational trails system and trophy

the emergence of 6,000-acre Suncadia resort in 2003, premier
destination resorts in Washington state were mostly confined to the "moist"
side of the Cascade mountain range. Bisected by the scenic Cle Elum
River, Suncadia is situated in mature stands of pine, Douglas fir and aspen trees that
spread through home sites and along the resort's two public golf
courses and the private 18-holes at Tumble
Creek. In 2008, the Lodge at Suncadia with
its 160 condo-style units opened on a bluff
overlooking the river. Also opened in 2008 were the resort
spa adjacent to the lodge and a new recreation center.
