Marveling at the magnitude of your surroundings will be the highlight of your visit to Sheldon Chalet. There’s nothing else like it in the world.
Year-round activities include Denali-style sledding, glacier trekking, and exploring nearby crevasses and snow caves with your experienced guide. You can even try your hand at snow shoeing across the Ruth Glacier, with a gourmet glacier picnic as your prize. For the less-adventurous the deck offers awe-inspiring views of one of the most beautiful places on Earth. You can even see – and hear! – small avalanches occurring in the distance.
From September through the end of April, Sheldon Chalet provides some of the best aurora and star gazing available anywhere on the planet. Due to its combination of high latitude and elevation, the Chalet provides unique opportunities for aurora viewing, showcasing rare colors and panoramic views of the dancing lights.
Regardless of when you visit, warm up each evening in the Chalet’s European-style sauna, perched above the Ruth Glacier.
