The StokeYard Steam Trials 

We set up our first SnowTrekker winter camping tent 15 months ago when the company’s owners Duane and Margot Lottig sent one our way for testing. They wanted to know how it faired compared to those we have built, hosted and experienced. 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.

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 winter at the StokeYard Steam Trials. 

Stop by to toast the advancement of sauna steam science with a first look at our new wood-fired sauna steam machine. 

Full steam ahead!
