The summit will be held at the Salish Lodge & Spa nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains 30 miles east of Seattle. In addition to a spa, Salish offers three notable restaurants and immaculate guestrooms.

Lodge guests can hear the roar of Snoqualmie Falls as whitewater tumbles over granite cliffs nearly 300 feet into the emerald river canyon below. They can venture down the pine tree-lined trail by day and let the crackling personal wood-burning fireplace soothe their sleep by night.

The Snoqualmie Tribe considered Snoqualmie Falls a spiritual place of great power. Today Snoqualmie Falls is the second most visited tourist destination in Washington State.
