TAOS, New Mexico — Taos Ski Valley plans to open its season on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27.
The ski area in northern New Mexico says it expects to initially operate on a limited schedule, with lifts open Thursday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Seven-day-a-week operations are scheduled to start on Dec. 11.
New this season will be a chairlift to provide skiers with access to Kachina Peak at about 12,450 feet. Also opening is new hike-to terrain that will provide 35 acres of tree skiing that can be reached from the West Basin Ridge.
The ski area, which is about 19 miles from the community of Taos, also is renovating its base area and will have a new location where skiers are dropped off from parking lot shuttles.
