It looks like it has lifts, wherever it is; there's a slope outside of town called Luossavaara with some lifts, but it doesn't match the viewpoint in the cap.

We now have a more complete episode description from CBS, and it sounds as if we will see the "giving back" at the Ghana village's school:

Quote

TEAMS TRAVEL FROM THE SUFFOCATING HEAT OF AFRICA TO THE SHIVERING COLD TEMPERATURES OF THE ARCTIC CIRCLE, ON "THE AMAZING RACE," SUNDAY, OCT. 17

"We Should Have Brought Gloves and Butt Pads" (Sweden) - After teams volunteer at a local school in Ghana, THE AMAZING RACE makes it's first-ever trip to the Arctic Circle, where one couple finds themselves in an unfortunate position and contemplate making a game changing decision, on THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, Oct. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan is host.

Well, thanks to the non-elimination we know that the next team that's Philiminated is one of the following teams:

Chad & Stephanie,
Connor & Jonathan,
Katie & Rachel
& Nick & Vicky.

I don't think it's Chad & Stephanie (they're featured in the preview), though they could still be out.  I don't think it's Connor & Jonathan either (they're in first), although they too could be out.  That leaves me with Katie & Rachel and Nick & Vicky as the most likely suspects.

The public service project at the Asebi D/A Primary School will not cost teams anything in terms of when they get to Europe. The timing of reaching the pit stop for leg 3 should be noon plus or minus. Team could get a 18 hour pit stop and be ready to start the work project at 6am plus or minus and work until dark.

The best flight is Luthansa to Frankfurt departing at 10:03pm, which is why it does not cost them an extra day. I commend World Race Productions for innovative thinking in how to utilize what would otherwise have been an Extended Pit Stop early in the race.

Apskip, many of the flights have been already confirmed by spoiler sources. The info is in the first post of the TIMELINE thread.

When Claire mentions not bringing snow boots I believe they may be in the Ice Hotel that was mentioned a while back.

I'm not 100% certain, but caps 12 and 13 (the video gives a better look in the background) look like they match up with the scene of the Snowtrail Dogcamp Lodge about 2/3 of the way down this page:

http://www.kirunadogcamp.com/winter-lappland.html.

You're right, north09, scenes in previews 1 and 2 clearly match up with the Ice Hotel (as if there was much doubt). There's a nice video of the ice hotel on this page:

http://www.simplysweden.co.uk/icehotel/.

Sorry, I'm at work, so I can't grab images or videos and embed them.  :(

ICEHOTEL is situated in the village Jukkasjärvi, Sweden, 12 km from Kiruna Airport.

No I haven't seen the video, just the caps. but  I do not think that is the real Ice hotel. It looks more like the storage shed where they store the ice over the summer. There are a number of ice blocks stored in the background, and the place looks very big. As far as I know the actual ice hotel lacks any really large indoor spaces. Also as far as I know the hotel should be melted when the race passed by.

To me it looks like the back of the clue just reads "Route info" written in two different fonts on top of each other.

Go to their site and look at the photos maf...it is an exact match, right down to the ice chandelier.

Interstingly, both the ICEHOTEL and Riksgransen offer dogsledding...can we figure which one is ours? I think more like the ICEHOTEL...but good to be sure!

I beg to differ. I think they have just built up a part of the Ice hotel interior inside their Ice factory. The chandelier is the same and next to it is an arch. But in the real ice hotel pics that arch is actually the walls of the hotel. In the warehouse it is just a separate arch, which we see in the preview.

Also the hotel closes in April due to melting http://www.icehotel.com/uk/ICEHOTEL/Stay-at-ICEHOTEL/.

But I do not think it is worth arguing over this. We will find out when the episode airs  :yess:

I have not been able to find any picture matches from the inside of Kiruna airport. But the pictures look like the typical small Swedish airport so I would say it is a fair chance they are from Kiruna.

The dogsledding landscape looks flat with trees.  That matches the area around the IceHotel.  Also, the time of day is earlier for the dogsledding.  The sun looks much higher than the snowy shots at Riksgransen.

I'm having trouble matching the location of the dogsledding but i think I have matched a dog to the IceHotel !   :lol:

Look in this youtube video of dogsledding at the Ice Hotel:  YouTube

Here are video captures from the preview and from the YouTube video:
