Suncadia, a new year-round mountain resort community, has quickly become a recreational playground for Seattleites and travelers across the Pacific Northwest. Now the 6,400-acre destination -- located 90 minutes east of Seattle -- is helping clients celebrate the holiday season stress-free with three all-inclusive holiday party packages, allowing groups and businesses of all sizes to host memorable holiday gatherings and reward employees for an excellent year. From luxurious cozy guestrooms to seasonally-inspired cuisine, Suncadia provides a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life and offers guests the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season in style.

“Our snow-covered landscape creates an ideal location for wintertime activities such as dog sledding, cross-country skiing, ice skating and snowshoeing. The toasty fireplaces lit throughout the grand Lodge create a warm retreat where any group can create memories to last beyond the holidays,” said Gregg Harper, general manager of resort operations at Suncadia.
