Cleaning a hotel room has everything to do with Swiss culture, since some of the best schools on hotel management are in Switzerland and many Swiss work in the hotel business and they are really sought-after employees worldwide.

:yess: got it!  The cowboys are cleaning up at the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern

their website says "...since January 2nd, 2014 all available rooms are renovated!", but the carpet, bed, drapes, lamps, and chairs match!

That's the Frecciarossa train (Italy High Speed Rail) behind the girls.  :-[ Oooops! I need to get my eyes fixed, as that's really the Frecciabianca train (High Speed Rail between Milan and Venice) behind the girls.  That would make this location to be the Milan Central Station.  The girls are on a different train, probably going from Milan to Lucerne.

Frecciabianca schedule

Edited to add:  Forget what I said before, almost positive now this is Milan Station.  :groan:

Ahh true. I should have looked that up. I hope that the task is similar to TAR Canada's RCMP challenge.

This is starting to get reaaaly sad, though I can't wait to see the episode (which looks to have great & interesting tasks) and read people's reactions. :o The casuals on facebook especially, the Brenchel hate should really minimize!

 :waves:  Cool preview, Alenaveda.  I see an "ice cave" and "gondola".  Mt. Titlis has a glacier ice cave, but is in Engelberg, a short train ride from Lucerne.  They have gondolas there too.  Closer to Lucerne is Mount Pilatus, with gondolas but no ice caves to speak of.

"Accidental Alliance"--In this Active Route Marker, Cowboy brothers Jet (left) and Cord (right) must calculate the model year of a Ford Mustang using the corresponding kilometers of two different Swiss cities in order to receive the next clue on the all-star edition of THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, April 27


"Accidental Alliance"--Cousins Jamal (left) and Leo (right) must drive themselves to Engelberg and take a gondola up to the top of Mount Titlis in a race to the Pit Stop on the all-star edition of THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, April 27

Chiasso, Switzerland is the border city on the border of Italy/Suisse. TAR was at that train station in TAR14. Teams have to switch from Italian trains to Suisse trains, then thru the Gotthard Tunnel  to get to Lucerne.

There was a lot of answer-sharing. Some teams apparently can't do math on their own.

That time, all teams worked together, share the answer to eliminate the Cowboys.

Oh, I see. I couldn't remember that ;)
Actually, I believe the globetrotters would have been eliminated in Rome had the Afghanimals not shared the RB answer with them & JJ.  (:;) John was much closer to the answer :res:

AND THAT'S WHY I HATE ANSWER SHARING.

True, the Globetrotters would have been eliminated in Rome if the Afghanimals hadn't shared the answer with them and J & J. but we have to remember that they thought that Caroline & Jennifer were behind them.  Had they known that they were racing the other two teams for last place I'm sure that the Afghanimals wouldn't have shared the answer.

Thank god the Hotel Cleaning is an ARI (Hooray for ARIs in this season finally!  :groan:), but it's still a very very weird task to place in a beautiful country like Switzerland.
Because you know I'm all about that bass.

I'm glad that there are several Route Info Tasks (I think "Active" Route Info sounds dumb, but that's just me.) However, it leads me to believe that, like TAR22's visit to Switzerland, there won't be a Detour.

Glacier cave on Mt. TITLIS   

The glacier cave is bathed
in a dim turquoise-blue light. On the walls, millions of tiny ice crystals
sparkle and glisten. The air is so cold that tiny white clouds appear when you
breathe.

A magical world of ice awaits you.

 This glacier
cave forms the frosty heart of TITLIS. The ice here was frozen long before
prehistoric man discovered how to make fire using pyrite.

 The
cave's 150-metre-long walkway branches out in several directions and descends 20
metres below the surface of the glacier. The hazy atmosphere is the result of
tiny air pockets in the ice, and the blue colour is caused by the refraction of
light.
 Exploring the glacier cave is a cool experience. The temperature
inside the cave remains a frosty -1.5˚C.

 The cave can be easily
accessed via a corridor from the TITLIS ROTAIR Cableways mountain station. Entry
to the glacier cave is free of charge.

Yet more webcams (of Lucerne) at the Titlis Glacier Park website.

I suspect the task of sliding in the snow with milk cans was at one of the snow tubing slopes.

Here's a description of the Glacier Park facilities:
You can try out the latest fashionable sliding equipment such as the Balancer, Snow-Scoot, Airboard, and Snake Gliss on an easy trail. Everyone can master the Snowtube Run where you slide down an easy bob run on an inner tube. Fun and a change of pace are guaranteed!

I think that the Mount Titlis Ice Cave and Milk Can tasks are first,because it looks like teams are together in the cave.

Just a reminder that if we don't see a detour on this leg, doesn't mean there wasn't one. The editors are known to re-edit a detour into an active route marker task when all the teams choose the same side of the detour. And the fact that there appears to be two active route markers make me think this is a possibility this time.
