I set up my first SnowTrekker winter camping tent 15 months ago when the company’s owners Duane and Margot Lottig sent one my way for testing. They wanted to know how it faired compared to those I have built, hosted and experienced. I first heard about Snow Trekker from winter camping guru Garrett Conover who said I should connect with them to apply their mastery of wood heating for a better burn at The Forge. What started as a weekend testing expedition has turned into more than a year of collaboration on a new sauna space that delivers authentic heat without the infrastructure or investment of a conventional build.
612 Sauna Society President Rod Buhrsmith, SaunaTimes Founder Glenn Auerbach and builder Darrin Gee joined the project this fall with the goal of advancing a design for a more mobile and affordable experience of authentic Sauna heat. We want to share the best of what Sauna can be with the most people as possible and— after over a year of testing and building— we’re stoked to be showing off our first prototype this weekend at Bauhaus Brew Labs!

Full steam ahead!
