Liftopia Entices Skiers and Boarders to Play Hooky and Hit the Slopes

Ditch Memos for Mountains and Papers for Powder During the Fourth Annual National Play Hooky and Ski Week, March 2-6, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 19, 2015) - Why let work or school get in the way of a day on the mountain? The Fourth Annual National Play Hooky and Ski Week is Mar. 2 - 6, and Liftopia -- the largest online and mobile marketplace for advance purchase lift tickets and other mountain activities -- is providing great incentives to play hooky and hit the slopes with up to 75 percent off advance purchase lift tickets at more than 250 resorts across North America.

"Every year, we all wish we had spent more time on the hill. National Play Hooky and Ski Week is a great way to make good on those aspirations. Even if for one day, it is easy to take a quick break from work or school," said Evan Reece, co-founder and CEO of Liftopia.

In honor of National Play Hooky and Ski Week, Liftopia is giving away a trip to Aspen Snowmass for one lucky winner and a friend. The sweepstakes begins Feb. 23, and more details and an entry form will be available at go.liftopia.com/playhooky. On March 2, Liftopia is launching a #PlayHookyGoSki Photo Contest that will encourage skiers and boarders to tag their photos from the slopes with #PlayHookyGoSki on Instagram and Twitter for a chance to win a $250 Liftopia gift credit.
