Healthy snow

Cooling off has never been so special – our new Snow Sauna.

Recently, the Casies Valley has been experiencing snow all year round and the Quelle Hotel is, as of May 2016, the first establishment in the Alps to possess a snow sauna.
This extra special spa experience, from the South Tyrolean aresana® brand, uses the combination of dry cold and soft snow to cool you down gently after you’ve spent time in a regular sauna.

Dr Christian Thuile, director of complementary medicine at the Merano hospital in South Tyrol, has developed a method in which short blasts of cold followed by warming-up phases can be best used to increase a person’s well-being. At temperatures approaching -10°C, the snow sauna offers a gentle and pleasant way of cooling down after visiting a traditional sauna.

The approximately 10m² snow room in the Quelle Hotel Nature Spa Resort is perfectly integrated into the overall design of the spa area. A bench made of genuine old spruce wood and a hand-finished tree will inspire you to chill out – literally – in the powdered snow. The white LED lighting finishes the scene off nicely.
