Amazing Race fans ready? Let's GO!
Teams have to find certain cars in Chamonoix to get their next clue. Then they're going up to the top of the highest mountain in Europe in a gondola car. They're set for a mountain hike. In ice and snow, of course. They're going up with mountain guides.
Yikes! They have to ascend snow stairs and then take a hand powered kind of zip line among high peaks to retrieve their clue.
Detour: Dynamite -- must deliver explosives and lunch to experts. After the pros explode the dynamite to control avalanches, they will get their next clue. Campsite has them setting up a snow camp.
The dynamite detour is very treacherous ... especially for those afraid of heights.
Alpha Boys Kurt and Brodie are in the lead. The Roadblock has them para-gliding and answering a question regarding it to get the next clue.
Erin and Joslyn are wandering about clueless looking for lunch.
Now Tyler has overtaken the Alpha Dude. (Alpha Dude crashed on take-off.) Tyler spots the (clue) Yeti with a Frnech flag.
Cole is having issues with the heights. Poor guy.
1. Tyler and Korey - won a trip to the Phillipines

The next episode will air April 1st. I assume that's due to March Madness basketball.
