We'd like to put steam into our residential remodel with a window. Our new vinyl window is 30" x 60", fixed, double-paned and tempered but we live in a very cold environment. Will the window seal withstand that interior/exterior extreme? Suggestions??

Having a window in a stearn shower is not a problem.  You just have to be sure to add the appropriate percentage when calculating the adjusted cubic feet since the window is a source for heat loss.  Also calculate for having an outside wall.

Check out our Sizing Tool

But there should be no problem with the seal using a vinyl window? Which kind of window is considered the best for a problem-free steam shower.

Any vinyl trim glass window that can handle the elements mother nature throws at it should be fine.  Any window that you would use even if it was just going to be a regular shower.
A steam shower isn't much different from a standard shower.
Double-pane is a must.  And you want a good seal on the inside of the steam shower.
Many a steam shower has windows.  Some as we discussed and some are glass block.
It's nice to be able to have extra light (natural light) and opening a window to act as a vent to dry out the shower.
