Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book a stay at the Sheldon Chalet?
All bookings are done directly through the Sheldon Family by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact form.
How do you access the Sheldon Chalet?
The Sheldon Chalet is only accessible by air. Part of the experience of staying at the chalet is the flight seeing adventure from Anchorage or Talkeetna.
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—year-round.
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.
