The EVEREST PEAK claims to be the pinnacle of electric cryotherapy systems. But is it right for your business?
At Rutherford & Titan, we understand that each business has unique needs. That’s why our independent team works closely with clients to consider a wide range of factors—from pricing and features, to operational costs and footprint—before we recommend a product.
In this feature, we take a closer look at the EVEREST PEAK by CryoBuilt, a fully electric cryotherapy system that features some unique technologies and design elements. We give you a quick overview of the product, break down the key features and benefits, and help you determine whether investing in EVEREST PEAK is right for your business.

What We Like about the EVEREST PEAK
It grows with your business. One of the most stressful aspects of choosing a cryotherapy system (particularly for new business owners) is that you don’t know exactly how many customers you’ll be serving. Invest in a big machine, and you will have enough capacity to meet demand—but that requires a large initial investment. Invest in a smaller machine, and you might find that you are struggling to serve all your customers.
As consultants for cryogenic businesses, we appreciate the modular design of the EVEREST PEAK, which can be upgraded for double capacity. This gives business owners the flexibility to make a smaller initial investment; and then, depending on their demand, resources and space, upgrade later.
It’s operator-friendly. Everyone’s talking about the user experience, but what about the operators—the people who use the machine every day? While some systems excel at user experience while forgetting the operators, we appreciate the smart, operator-friendly features of the EVEREST PEAK, like interactive apps and heated windows (which prevent fogging). These add a nice quality-of-life touch that makes a difference when you’re using the system every day.
It’s all-electric. Ask anyone who owns a nitrogen-based machine: What’s the most difficult part of running your business? Many of them will tell you it’s the nitrogen. First, you have to secure a supplier (we can help you there). Then, you have to monitor your supplies closely—the last thing you want to do is run short when you have customers waiting—and attempt to schedule appointments in clusters, so you won’t waste precious (and expensive) nitrogen. In addition to convenience, this also means lower operating costs, compared to nitrogen-based machines, as well as optimal safety for your customers (as inhaling nitrogen can be dangerous).
There’s a lot to like about this machine, from its modular design and operator-friendly features to its all-electric system. But that’s not to say it’s right for every business.
A Few Things to Keep in Mind
Price. The EVEREST PEAK is competitively priced, compared to machines in its class. However, it’s about three times as expensive as some nitrogen-based saunas. Cost is definitely something to consider, especially for new business owners.
Nitrogen vs. Electric. Which is better? Depends who you ask. As we mentioned above, electric is generally safer, less expensive and more convenient than nitrogen. However, many nitrogen-based systems reach significantly lower temperatures than electric systems. (For example, the °CRYO Arctic™ reaches -220F, compared to the EVEREST’s -166.) Also, some users prefer the overall experience of a nitrogen-based system—the drama of opening the chamber and watching clouds of white gas pour out—but many users hardly notice the difference.
Interior Space. Some users like to move around during sessions. The EVEREST PEAK, which allows 1-2 users per session, doesn’t have the space for much movement compared to some of its roomier competitors—but it does allow for more movement than most single-user saunas.
On the other hand, the machine requires less real-estate than much of the competition. When working with our clients, we walk them through some of these tough decisions, like weighing the importance of a roomy interior vs. the machine’s footprint.
