Pipe to a pager to preserve console output in SSH session

I'm playing with my ansible playbook in a remote tmux session, and I'm no wiz so I don't know the ins and outs, but I can't scroll up to get any console log output that's not already visible on my screen. So I'm starting to end my commands with | less so I can page through the console output!

ansible-playbook plays.yml -v --tags mytag | less
