For immediate release:
SAN FRANCISCO – (Feb. 19, 2014) – Who needs an official holiday to sneak in a powder day? Celebrate the third annual National Play Hooky & Ski Week from Monday, March 3 to Friday, March 7, and get more skiing or boarding in this year with the help of Liftopia – the largest online and mobile marketplace for lift tickets and other mountain activities.
"With resorts in every part of the country getting serious snow the past few weeks, the second half of the season is shaping up to be a great time to embrace winter and get out on the hill," says Evan Reece, co-founder and CEO of Liftopia. "Our customers – but probably not their employers – love our Play Hooky Sale due to fewer crowds and wide-open trails 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 third annual National Play Hooky & Ski Week.
