The newly built Sheldon Chalet, which is set to open in February invites travellers to experience the wilderness of Alaska and those who love the winter season and everything that comes with it: snow, freezing temperatures and scratchy wool sweaters.

A Luxury Chalet to Open on Peak of Alaskan Glacier

The Sheldon Chalet can easily call itself one of the world’s most exclusive addresses, accessible only by plane, at 6,000 feet above sea level. Located just 10 miles from the summit of Denali, the new luxury chalet is perched on the peak of an Alaskan glacier, offering not only a breathtaking surrounding but also taking concept of living on the edge to new heights.

The common area features a fireplace, kitchen, dining space, sitting areas, sauna, viewing station and outdoor observation deck, where guests can sip on champagne while taking in the majesty of their wintry surroundings just 10 miles (16 km) from the summit of North America’s highest mountain peak, Denali.

Other services include a personal chef who will prepare meals for guests on-site by creating menus that highlight regional ingredients like Alaska King Crab, Copper River Salmon and locally-grown micro greens.

After an intense day of glacier trekking with the mountaineering guides, guests can retire to their cosy bedrooms, warm up with fur throws, and settle under the covers while being lulled to sleep by bright, starry nights or, if you’re lucky, the aurora borealis.

A Historical Background of the Sheldon Chalet

The construction of the Sheldon Chalet was a nearly 50-year vision. Following the death of their mother in 2014, siblings Robert and Kate Sheldon decided to fulfil their parents’ dream of opening an adventure property in Denali National Park.
