It’s time for another update from the Vettä construction site!
Join founder Eric Harkonen and the lead of food and beverage at Vettä, Anahita Belanger, as we check in with the Vettä site and see what’s new in our latest Project video.
Signature Saunas Heating Up
Insulation is being installed in Building 9, one of our signature saunas, to help it stay warm and toasty for your sauna experience. But that’s not the only thing heating up around Vettä – you’ll notice plenty of snow on the ground now, but you won’t see much if you visit us in the winter.
All of our walkways are heated, so you’ll be able to move from place to place in comfort, even in the heart of the winter season. However, one traditionally Finnish way to cool off after a sauna session is to go for a roll in the snow, so don’t let us discourage you from seeking out a fresh patch!
Digging Into the Action
Eric will walk you through the lower levels of Vettä, which most guests will never see. In this area, everything from the heating, electricity, IT department, and maintenance for all six pools will be controlled and monitored by the Vettä staff.
You’ll also get to see the locker rooms, bistro, bar, and Lumon Room taking shape.
Food & Beverage: Locally Sourced for an Unforgettable Experience
At Vettä, we’re creating a food experience that connects you, the guest, to local, seasonal, fresh ingredients that nourish deeply and help you experience what the surrounding area has to offer. You’ll be able to dine both indoors and out.
And, of course, connecting to the land doesn’t end with the food. In our on-site restaurant, a full glass wall will allow you to take in the natural beauty of the surrounding Horseshoe Valley area, and with an outdoor patio for al fresco dining, there’s no better way to really experience the environment.
We’re placing special emphasis on eliminating food waste. With our own on-site farm and the use of crushed herb stems and infusion syrups in our craft cocktails (alcoholic and non-alcoholic, to suit your tastes), you’ll be able to see and taste the difference that commitment to zero waste makes.
