Perched on a mountain ridge above the Don Sheldon Amphitheatre, Sheldon Chalet offers an incredible experience just 10 miles from the summit of Denali. At an elevation of 6,000ft (±1820 metres), the chalet offers incredible mountain views and is the perfect place to launch heli-adventures and observe the aurora borealis. In fact, the high elevations of Sheldon Chalet, combined with the crystal-clear mountain air, provide excellent aurora-viewing and stargazing conditions. Situated on a private five acre plot within Denali National Park, Sheldon Chalet is accessible by air and transportation via helicopter.
Set over two floors and covering 2,000 square feet, Sheldon Chalet is able to accommodate up to 10 guests.
