Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I book a stay at the Sheldon Chalet?

    All bookings are done directly through the Sheldon Family by emailing or use our contact form.

  • How do I get to the Sheldon Chalet?

    The Sheldon Chalet is only accessible by air and transportation is via helicopter which is exclusive to the Sheldon Family since you are landing on their private land within Denali National Park. The helicopter flight is included in your stay and a grand part of the experience.

  • What clothing should I pack?

    The Sheldon Chalet is located at about 6000 feet elevation and the weather changes greatly depending on the season. We suggest guests bring layers of clothing—from long underwear to winter jackets to warm winter boots—year-round. A comprehensive packing list is provided once you reserve your adventure at the Sheldon Chalet.

  • Will I see the Aurora Borealis?

    The Aurora is, typically, visible during the winter months, when the sky is dark enough to see them. Weather is a major factor for seeing the Aurora, and Denali creates its own weather pattern because of its shear size. Generally, the Aurora is visible about one in three nights. Though we cannot guarantee that you will see the Aurora, if there is a clear night, there is a terrific chance of seeing them.

  • What is the Sheldon Chalet's capacity?

    The Sheldon Chalet can accommodate up to 10 guests at a time. There are five bedrooms that can sleep up to two individuals per room.
