SAN FRANCISCO – (Feb. 20, 2013) – Who needs an official holiday? The second annual National Play Hooky & Ski Week is Mar. 4 – 8, and Liftopia – the largest online marketplace for deals on lift tickets and mountain activities – has launched one of the biggest sales of the season, providing great incentives to play hooky and hit the slopes. More than 100 resorts across North America are participating in the sale, offering deals up to 84% off lift tickets valid Monday, March 4 to Friday, March 8.

“With continuous snowstorms hitting many resorts across the country, the second half of winter is shaping up to be a good one for skiers and boarders. Now is the perfect time to forget work and school, pull out the excuses and plan a mountain getaway,” said Ron Schneidermann, co-founder and CMO of Liftopia. “Our ‘National Play Hooky and Ski Week’ sale is a favorite among our customers — but possibly not their employers — due to the killer savings, fewer crowds, and more fresh powder that can be found when hitting the slopes mid-week.”
The official proclamation for National Play Hooky & Ski Week reads as follows:

Whereas the American worker has been experiencing undue stress in the workplace; and, whereas it is generally accepted that engaging in awesome activities outside of the workplace decreases undue stress; and, whereas skiing and snowboarding are proven to be awesome activities. Henceforth, it is proclaimed that the first Monday in March shall be the start of the second annual National Play Hooky & Ski Week.
