I saw the movie Frozen a while back and it came to mind. This would be a very uncomfortable position to be in. Stuck in the cold in the air would not be a good way to spend a day. I have been skiing once but not on the lift. Any mechanical malfuntion will leave you stranded for who knows how long. How would you take it, angry or ok with it?
