Perched on a nunatak 6,000 feet above the Don Sheldon Amphitheater, ten miles from the summit of Denali National Park in Alaska, Sheldon Chalet is a breath-taking property anyone should place on their bucket list.  This brand new resort opened this past February 2018 and will again open for the season this upcoming September 15th.

For $2,300 per person per night guests can relax and experience Denali at this eco-conscious chalet in a way that’s never been seen before with gear, guides, a chef, all F&B, a concierge and the helicopter transport to and from the Chalet.  This season, running from September 15 until April 30th, Sheldon Chalet’s curated activities for guests include:  Aurora Adventures; lighted crystal and blizzard gazing; shooting star, meteor and avalanche watching; Nunatak exploration via snowshoe or skis; snow cave or igloo construction; remote hot springs excursion; and heli or fixed wing geography touring.

Of course, the can't-miss activity is the Aurora Adventure.  Stunning and vivid colors including bright greens, purple and blue hues can be seen in all directions and the entire amphitheater lights up with the colors of the aurora as it reflects off the snowy peaks and glacier.

Then come back after a day of adventure, where guests can enjoy a gourmet dinner prepared by Sheldon Chalet’s chef showcasing the finest Alaskan sourced ingredients.  Linger in the dining room for a seafood extravaganza of sweet Alaskan oysters, halibut ceviche, tiny spot shrimp, king crab, with Alaskan rhubarb cocktail sauce and local spruce tip mignonette.  A charcuterie spread served after a glacier hike in the Mountain House, along with cheeses from the Basque region and from Burgundy, including a bresaola made from bison, fresh pickles from an Alaska forager, pickled fiddlehead ferns and delicate spruce tips.

Then recline on the comfortable Sheldon Chalet couches, enjoying a nightcap, while stargazing on the observation decks.  Choose also from house beer or wine or select from a sommelier-designed wine, beer and fine spirits program at market price.
