At last, Zev and Justin get to open their clue. It's a Detour, the options being "Search" or "Rescue." Phil narrates, "The alpine glaciers surrounding the Matterhorn are extremely dangerous. The unpredictable crevasses are always cracking and avalanches can occur at any moment." So let's drop ten American game show contestants up there, shall we? We see Phil out on the snowfield, telling us that they'll have to "choose between two ways of bringing a stranded mountaineer to safety." For "Search," "teams brave extreme wind conditions and use an avalanche beacon to locate a training dummy that's been buried somewhere on this glacier." After they've found it, they have to dig it up and haul it to the surface, like the PAs in front of Phil are doing, to receive their next clue. For "Rescue," they use a special block and tackle to rescue an actual, extremely unlucky, guy. To do this, one re-racer is lowered into the crevasse to clips a rescue line to him. Then that re-racer gets reeled back up, and they two of them will pull up the stranded man together to get their next clue. By the way, I hope they closed the Matterhorn for the day so there aren't any real emergencies while the rescue helicopter fleet is tied up..
While getting on the helicopter, Zev and Justin debate their options and settle on Search, because Zev thinks it'll be easier. Easier for Zev, maybe. They're soon soaring over the mountains, and become the first racers, possibly ever, to tell their driver, "Slow down, slow down!" It's some stunning scenery they're flying over, especially when the Matterhorn appears over the horizon. Zev educates us, "The Matterhorn was named after the Disneyland ride. Pretty mind-boggling to me." Well, you learn something from this show every week.
Jen and Kisha open their clue in second place, and opt for Rescue because Jen thinks Search could take hours. Jen loves the flight but Kisha says, "I'd feel better if my feet were planted to the ground."
Flying over the snowscape, Zev declares the scenery "really Inception-like." They come down in a flat area, with some people waiting nearby, hopefully getting extra pay not only for the fact that they're out on a windy glacier in the first place, but also because the helicopter's rooster-tail seems to be hitting them full in the face. Next thing we see, Zev and Justin are equipped with their gear, including handheld beepers to indicate the location of the beacon and long poles to stick in the snow when the time comes. It's reassuring to know that if I ever find myself buried in an avalanche, I'll know help is on the way when something from above pokes me. They start out across the snow, following the beepers until the devices tell them they're there. Yeah, that's the easy part.
