In honor of National Play Hooky & Ski Week (what, you’ve never heard of this holiday?), Liftopia -- the largest online marketplace for deals on lift tickets -- is offering incentives to hit the slopes.

Liftopia officials said more than 100 resorts across North America are participating in the sale, offering significant discounts on lift tickets March 4-8.

“Our ‘National Play Hooky & 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,” said Liftopia co-founder Ron Schneidermann in a statement.

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.”
