When does the ski season start? ‘How About Now?’ Loggins asks

Kenny Loggins will be “Footloose” the evenings of Nov. 23 and 24, but he hopes to be strapping on skis in the daytime.

The songwriter/singer has just five concerts scheduled through May, two of them at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe during the Thanksgiving weekend.

“With Tahoe, I was hoping to take the kids skiing so I took a couple of dates there,” Loggins said Wednesday. “I managed to get three of my kids to want to come up and get in the snow.”

Heavenly Mountain Resort had hoped to open Friday, Nov. 16, but Mother Nature has not cooperated. The resort is now setting its sites on next week.

“We are only a few good nights of snowmaking away from opening the upper Nevada side,” Heavenly’s Web site reported. “This weekend’s forecast is calling for cooler temps with the chance of snow Friday and Saturday and more significantly on Sunday.”

A Thanksgiving weekend storm is also predicted.

Loggins was encouraged by the weather reports.

“That would be ideal,” he said.

Heavenly is making snow on cold evenings. The first two lifts to open will be the Dipper and Comet Express on the Nevada side.

Kirkwood Mountain Resort has announced a Nov. 24 opening, weather permitting.

So is Loggins, who recently released his 12th album, “How About Now,” a big-time skier?

“I wouldn’t say big time, but it’s something I like to do with the kids,” he said. “I have five children ranging from 26 to 10 and they are all skiing or snowboarding.”
