(AP) Because of heavy snowfall in northern New Mexico, Taos Ski Valley is moving up its date for switching to seven-day-a-week operations.

Ski area lifts are running Thursday through Sunday, but will begin operating daily on Dec. 12 a week earlier than planned.

Taos opened on Thanksgiving, and marketing manager Adriana Blake said the ski area is enjoying its best opening since 1997.

Not all lifts are operating, but Blake said about half of the ski area's trails are open, including some terrain requiring skiers to hike up to a ridge.

She said lifts on the ski area's backside will not run next week when daily operations start, although skiers can access much of that terrain and return to the base.
