Snow for the Sauna - An entirely new way to cool down

Cooling down in the snow will do you good and stimulates the senses on various levels: deep breaths refresh the lungs and cold air cools down the body from head to toe. The wintry surroundings will delight the eye whilst a subtle aroma and appropriate acoustics create a relaxing ambiance. The freshly snow-covered landscape has this effect for a few minutes. Then anyone who wishes to do so can rub themselves with snow.

The Snow Room

The SnowRoom, also known as the snow cabin, snow sauna, ice room or cold room, is a room covering a surface area of 5m² to 20m² with real snow. The room is cooled to -5°C to -10°C and snow falls every night. Attractive interior designs create a pleasant atmosphere and make the room a key attraction in the wellness area.

Cold is essential

A proper sauna also requires rapid cooling after sweating. The sauna can only strengthen the immune system, stimulate blood circulation and boost metabolism if combined with the cold. A SnowRoom is ideal for restoring the body to a normal temperature - from head to toe: Deep breaths at -10°C and dry air cool the airways whilst powdery snow also has a cooling effect on the skin. Compared to dowsing with water, the cold effect is intensified without causing a cold shock.

The benefits of gentle contrast therapy with snow

Compared to traditional wet, cold treatments, the snow sauna is cold and dry and is pleasant to use and will even appeal to those who dread the cold. This perception of pleasure is essential in intensifying the positive effects because we feel far less stressed than we would if we were experiencing comparable temperature differences in wet conditions. The SnowRoom exploits the physiological ability of the human body to adapt to the fullest extent.
