At the University of Idaho, saunas are to be operated as "dry" saunas, with no steam, no water on rocks, just a hot little wooden box for naked people to sweat in. It always pissed me off - wtf is a dry sauna? They cite safety reasons for the rule, but you'd think that keeping a little wooden room hot and dry would present its own safety concerns. You'd be right.
A fire in the sauna of a women’s locker room caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to the University of Idaho’s Physical Education Building over the weekend.
