From USD$12,697 per person
View Map

Winter on Denali is all about the Aurora, when vibrant shades of color dance across a starlit sky. At this prime meteorological viewing time, the remote and exclusive Sheldon Chalet offers full moon glacier treks, cozy fireside evenings and a sauna to keep out the chill. Other activities available in winter are star and meteor shower gazing, glacier trekking, snow cavern spelunking, sledding and – exclusive to this season only – snowstorm viewing.

While the landscape sleeps beneath a blanket of snow, rest assured you’ll stay cozy at the chalet. An engineering marvel located just 10 miles from Denali’s summit, it features five guest rooms, a living and dining area, an observation deck and a sauna.
