A development agreement between the City of Snoqualmie and Gateway Cascades, LLC was entered into in 2004 for expansion of the Salish Lodge & Spa to include an expanded hotel, meeting/conference facilities, restaurant, and residential homes on 40.3 acres. In 2007, after a bid process, the Salish Lodge & Spa and the expansion property were purchased by the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe
