The Juniper Hotel, perched on the lower slope of Mount Norquay, showcases unsurpassed views of a majestic natural environment. This view provides our daily compass towards improving sustainability practices and furthering environmental awareness.
The Juniper Hotel is lead by the guiding principles of its owner, Arctos & Bird of Banff. Arctos & Bird hold a vision for environmental protection as well as community enhancement, heritage preservation, and architectural excellence.
The Hotel Association of Canada awarded The Juniper three Green Keys for significant steps taken to protect the environment. While this is favourable achievement, we continue to work to strengthen our environmental intelligence and best practices.
Conservation, then conversion was the focus in the 2003 renovation of what was once the Timberline. The hotel re-opened as The Juniper in Nov 2004 with thoughtful incorporation of recycled and reused materials. The solid dining room tables are made from wood recovered from an old airport hangar in Fort Macleod. The handsome, heavy bench in the lobby was once a beam in a Calgary warehouse. The thin slate tiles engraved with room numbers once shed rain on the roof of the staff quarters. More eco-design information.
The Juniper Hotel is located within a known wildlife corridor. To better understand and respond to the wildlife in the area, Arctos & Bird partnered with UTSB Research. Remote cameras monitor the slopes of Mount Norquay that rise behind the hotel. The behaviour these cameras captured will help us appropriately modify human activity within the corridor.
