Over the next 20 years, Sun Peaks slowly increased its capacity to accommodate skiers with the building of the Shuswap double chairlift and construction of the Shuswap Day Lodge.Sun Peaks Resort matured into one of North America's prime winter and summer resorts, voted "best ski-in/ski-out village,"by Ski Canada Magazine in 2009.
