Well, if it was on for a few years...
If it gets a ride in a helicopter, sure.
I'm leaving it. I love the idea that I went up to ski and came back home a few years later. It speaks to the length of the Laramie Range winter, and allows for much imagining of what went on during that passage of time.
Oh, I'm fully in favor of leaving it. (It also has a Game of Thrones vibe.)
