Brumating a milksnake in a wine cooler?

Hello- I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice here. I'll be getting an adult milksnake, who has already started brumating, very soon and wanted to know the best route I could go about this. I've been reading that people use wine coolers, but I don't know how (if you have to drill holes into it so the snake could breathe or set it up any certain way), or how much space an adult honduran would need. Where I live I don't really have any cool areas, probably 73 at coolest. I was also debating whether or not a laptop fan would work, since I guess they only need to get around 60 degrees. I'm also considering just slowly taking him out of brumation and trying this next year when I'm more prepared. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A wine cooler works good. I've seen several used for brumating and incubating.

I believe additional holes are made and they do fine.

Maybe opening the door once a week is enough to be sure.
