You beauty the new sauna is in place! Chef Dan and maintenance men Todd and Tom have put our new Tight Knot Western Red Cedar outdoor sauna together!
Here’s some photos of their progress. Imagine after a few snowfalls and the snow starts to encase the sauna: it will look awesome.
Here’s a write up about the sauna that we posted earlier:
At Great Canadian we are blessed with awesome heliskiing conditions, though we are unable to control them. One thing we can control is our standard of service. Being a successful, family-owned business enables us to provide a very personalised experience that you might not find at a large, corporate organisation. Speaking to our guests, we had many requests for a sauna.
So we have listen and this winter we will have one!! It’s a Barrel Sauna made of Tight Knot Western Red Cedar, similar to the one in the photos. It will be 16 feet long (12 foot sauna, 4 foot changing room) and 8 feet in diameter. It can comfortably accommodate 8 people at any one time. It will be heated by a 10kw Heater with Digital Controls. There will be 2 ‘Port Hole’ windows in the rear of the barrel which might provide light at the start of the season, but will no doubt be covered as the snow starts piling up again this winter! The sauna will be located just steps away from the lodge, roughly halfway between the lodge and our on-site helipads.
