The Route Info Task looks cool! I just hope nothing similar to the TAR18 Liechtenstein RB happens.

The Room cleaning looks like a Detour option.

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.

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.
