Born in Wainwright, Alberta, Guy J. Turcotte graduated from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in 1972 with a diploma in Gas Technology (honours). He studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Tulsa, and earned an MBA at the University of Alberta. In 2001, in recognition of his extraordinary achievements in the oil and gas industry, he was inducted into the Engineering and Natural Sciences Hall of Fame at his Tulsa alma matter.
His long and successful career in the oil and gas industry includes his founding of Chauvco Resources Ltd. in Calgary in 1981. The $2 million of public capital that was originally invested was originally invested had become $1.3 billion by the time the company was sold in 1997. Guy was founder and chairman of both Western Oil Sands Inc. and Fort Chicago Energy Partners L.P. with market capitalizations of $4.5 billion and $1.7 billion.
But Guy's interests are not confined to what lies beneath the earth. He holds a lifelong love of nature and in particular the Canadian Rockies.In the late 1990s, it was this love that led him and three partners to acquire 600 acres of pristine Rocky Mountain wilderness just to the east of Banff National Park in Canmore, Alberta, and to reserve 200 of those acres as wildlife corridors in perpetuity. This was the genesis of Silvertip Resort, named for the Silvertip Grizzly. Later, the group also acquired Eagle Ranch in Invermere, British Columbia. In 1993, inspired by an ancient creek bed on the slope of Silvertip, the company that holds both of these resorts become known as Stone Creek Properties. The name was later changed to Stone Creek Resorts.
Today, Guy Turcotte is not only Chairman, President and CEO, and majority investor of Stone Creek Resorts Inc, but also the lead visionary behind the project. As a family man, business owner, and most importantly, a proud Canmore homeowner, his unwavering focus is to ensure every action taken at Silvertip is in harmony with, and inspired by, the land itself. From highway to village to pinnacle, the resort, by nature and design, will locals and visitors alike access to one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
