Selected for 2009 Alberta Tourism Awards
Dear Mr. Wasuta and Mrs. Bjorkquist:
On behalf of the Parks Canada Agency, I am pleased to recommend Pine Bungalows of Jasper, Alberta for consideration of a 2009 Alberta Tourism Award in the category of Sustainable Tourism.
Alberta Housing & Lodging Association
The Housekeeping Award program was developed in 1983 to encourage, recognize and foster excellence in housekeeping and maintenance. Any establishment participating in the Approved Accommodation program is eligible for nomination and the winners are then selected based on the inspection results.
Award Winning Team!
The crew at the Pine Bungalows is this week’s Jasper’s Greenest. Operator Mike Wasuita’s philosophy of conservation has been adopted by his staff & that has meant a smaller ecological footprint by the business.
Nestled in the heart of Jasper National Park, Pine Bungalows is surrounded by a spruce, pine & Douglas fir forest, mountains & wildlife.
Relax in our cozy lodgings & peaceful, inspiring environment without televisions, telephone or formal gardens. Or take time to stroll & sit a while along the Athabasca River & enjoy the view. We invite you to relax & enjoy your stay amid the splendors of Jasper National Park.
In 1998, Pine Bungalows was proud to be presented the Parks Canada “Park Environmentally Responsible Citizen” (PERC) award.
