Zach & Rachel, Erin & Joslyn, Sheri & Cole, and Scott & Blair's departure times were not shown on-screen.

Teams must search the nearby streets for one of eight cars from a list of provided license plate numbers; DS 453 FW, DS 640 KR, DS 312 KR, DS 141 GG, DS 100 KR, DS 526 KR, DS 390 KR, or DS 155 KR. Once they find a car, teams would be driven to Les Grands Motets Gondola Station, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must choose a mountain guide and take a set of mountain gear each, then take the gondola to the summit of Les Grands Motets. At the summit, one member must traverse a suspension line to retrieve their next clue from the mountain's peak. Only two teams may ride the gondola at a time.

Choice A: Dynamite
Teams must deliver two dynamite sticks and two baguettes to workers on Les Grands Motets. They must traverse the cliffs of the mountain via ferrata to a small peak where they would find workers who use dynamite for avalanche control on the mountain. Once they make the delivery, they would receive their next clue.

Brodie & Kurt, Dana & Matt, Erin & Joslyn, Scott & Blair, Sheri & Cole, Tyler & Korey, and Zach & Rachel chose this task.


Choice B: Campsite
Teams must use provided tools to set up a campsite, following a finished example as reference, to the attendant's satisfaction to receive their next clue.

Only Burnie & Ashley chose this task.

Teams must return to their cars, which would take them to the Planpraz Gondola Station, where they would find their next clue.

"Who feels the wind beneath their wings?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must tandem paraglide with an instructor from 7,000 ft. from the side of the Aiguilles Rouges and spot a yeti in the snow. Upon landing, they must identify which country's flag the yeti was waving (France (France)) to receive their next clue from a mountain watcher.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the Dr. Paccard Statue to check in.
For coming in first place, Tyler & Korey won a trip for two to Boracay, Philippines, provided by Travelocity.
