The 2020 Fantasy Gifts include: The Sheldon Chalet Alaska Experience
More than 70 years ago, while mapping the Alaska Range, pilot Don Sheldon discovered this remote and magical location. Wanting to share his wonderland with the world, he built the historic Sheldon Mountain House in 1966. A new building was added by his children in 2018, using Don’s original plans, which envisioned a bold monument, a haven among the peaks, just ten miles from Denali’s summit. And now, the family wants to share it with you. Neiman Marcus is inviting customers and up to five guests to take escapism to new heights, bringing your party to this secluded place for five nights. Customers will enjoy a private chef, a glacier exploration led by professional Denali guides, spectacular night skies, and more. Plus, Robert Sheldon will be on hand to discuss his family’s trailblazing history.
