LOS ANGELES – February 28th, 2013- Sales for lift tickets celebrating National Play Hooky and Ski Week went on sale today. If you tired of work, burnt out at school or you are looking for a chance to get away, hit the slopes and to do so with the best savings of the year, then this is a prime opportunity to get your skis out for the second half of what has been an extremely snowy season.
