Member Wayne Wilson at the Ruth Glacier

Please find below a link to a video taken by member Wayne Wilson of his excursion to Denali.

This video was shot during a ski tour of the Ruth Gorge in May 2008. We stayed in the Don Sheldon Hut which was the primary reason for going there. Reader’s Digest called the Sheldon Mountain Hut one of the ten most spectacular places on earth. The hut was built by bush pilot Don Sheldon in 1966. He transported all the materials via his ski plane and built the hut on a ridge which protrudes from the glacier. If anyone is interested in reserving the hut, the arrangements are made through the Alaska Mountaineering School ( Reservations need to be made well in advance for the best time slots.
