Story

Route Markers

Teams must fly to Milan, Italy and find the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II to search for their next clue. There are only three flights for the teams. The first flight is Swiss Air and can only accommodate four teams. The second flight is Lufthansa and can only accommodate three teams. The third flight is KLM, and can only carry five teams. The first two flights leave at 2:55 pm, however, the second arrives 45 minutes after the first. The third flight leaves an hour after the first two.

At the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, teams must search for tickets for chartered bus rides at 2:00 am, 4:00 am, and 6:00 am to Cortina d'Ampezzo. Once the teams find a ticket, they may not switch it for an earlier time. Buses can only take four teams at a time.

Teams must make their way to the top of Cinque Torri to find their next clue.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to them after finding their clue at Cortina d'Ampezzo. Teams must go to Passo Giau and put on snowshoes. There, they must hike to the Fast Forward pass. Monica & Sheree won the Fast Forward.

Choice A: Search
Teams must use a locator beacon to find a beeper emanating from beneath a 160-acre snow field. After finding it, they must dig in this spot and find a set of keys for a snowmobile which they would use to drive to their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.


Choice B: Rescue
Teams must make their way to a pair of rock towers and cross an alpine rescue bridge of four steel cables. Then, they must ride a long zip-line to travel 250 feet cross a ravine to receive their next clue.

All of the teams chose this task.

Teams must hike down the mountain and find the Hotel Lajadira to check in. For coming in first, Amanda & Chris, Millie & Chuck, and Steve & Josh each won a trip to Hawaii, provided by American Airlines.
