Next Episode of Ice Road Truckers is
Ice Road Truckers charts the lives of extraordinary men who haul vital supplies to diamond mines over frozen lakes that double as roads. The livelihood of many depends on these tenuous roads, which through the years have been responsible for the deaths of dozens of men. With one hand on the wheel and one on the door at all times, always prepared for the ice to give way under the weight of their trucks, these drivers put their lives and financial security of their families on the line in an exhilarating dash for cash. This adrenaline packed series reveals the raw, gripping quest of ice road truckers.The desolate white landscape stretches as far as the eye can see in a world where the land meets the sky at an invisible horizon, just miles from the Arctic Circle. The fascinating, yet little-known ice road trucking industry, stationed just outside of Yellowknife in Canada's Northwest Territory, is responsible for supporting the diamond mines there. Each year, the many lakes of this region completely freeze over and engineers build an ice road over them that can withstand the weight of tractor trailers, hopefully. Jackknifing, breakdowns and accidents are commonplace. Since the terrain in this region is virtually impenetrable, and there are so few paved roads, the only way for supplies to reach the mines is by traveling over the ice road. The entire industry depends on the weather and the courage of the ice road truckers, who go 48-hour stretches with no sleep and who constantly hear the cracking of the ice right beneath their wheels.
Welcome to Alaska. Season 3 opens with the deadliest ice road yet. Alex and Hugh are back, joined by 6 new truckers, including the first female ice road trucker!
Lisa Kelly wants to prove her worth to the men; Jack Jessee struggles with a big load and rookie Tim Freeman suffers mechanical problems.
It's three weeks into the season and the truckers only have 500 of 2,000 loads delivered and now the clock is ticking.
A massive winter storm closes the ice road. George, Tim and Lisa take shelter at the Coldfoot truck stop. Jack tries to outrun the storm.
Recent storms have been causing the truckers to lose time and money... This week Jack Jessee and Lisa decide no more waiting as they head out onto the roads before the plows clear a foot of fresh snow. Alex continues trying to catch up to Hugh, but suffers another mechanical setback when he gets a flat tire.
Lisa tries out for the Heavy Haul division by hauling 80-foot sections of wide-gauge pipe on a 600 mile run. A 500 mile race between Hugh and Alex. Tim's truck breaks down.
Tim and George run into a storm 25 miles from Deadhorse. Lisa is forced to stop in Coldfoot because of the storm. Hugh and his convoy partner have a barbecue in the snow at the top of Atigun Pass.
A deadly combination of unpredictable weather makes the Atigun Pass more dangerous than ever with slippery conditions and a risk of avalanches. Jack Jesse calls on friend Carey Hall to help haul a pair of 46,000-pound tanks worth $300,000.
There are only 3 weeks left in the season and everyone is feeling the pressure to get the goods delivered to Deadhorse. Lisa rushes to pick up her next load before joining a convoy north with Jack Jesse. Hugh and Alex discover a fellow fierce competitor on the road.
Only two weeks and everyone is cranking out the final loads, but things aren't always smooth sailing... Lisa's need for speed gets her in trouble when she stops dead on an uphill run, and has to restart from the bottom as trucks back up behind her. Alex picks up a loader and grinder bound for Fairbanks, but encounters buckled spots in the road which shake his trailer so badly that the straps on his load loosen and break. Hugh Rowland's impatience with trainee driver Phil Kromm nearly causes a disaster.
The drivers are pushed to their limits when they must shuttle critical supplies to the oil camps of Alaska's North Slope. With perhaps two weeks left in the season and 300 loads left to move, the truckers face a new challenge: the volcanic eruption of Mount Redoubt, which has grounded all air traffic and shut down the state's oil refineries. The Dalton Highway is left as the North Slope's only supply route for the time being. Jack, Lisa, Hugh and Alex all get hit with major mechanical malfunctions as the ice is thinning and the seasons is rushing to a close.
The truckers and their rigs are run ragged as they race to haul their last loads; Lisa accepts a load of high explosives; Jack spins out for the first time during the season; Ron's truck springs an oil leak.
As the final 72 hours of the season tick away, George Spears calls it a career. Lisa Kelly makes a harrowing 300-mile run with no brakes. The rivalry between two drivers comes down to the final load and Polar bears block the road.
