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.
The balance of power on the winter roads is turned upside down. Reigning champ Polar Industries returns, looking to maintain their dominance by any means necessary. But trucking rival, Darrell Ward, isn't backing down. He wants to turn his upstart company into a force on the winter roads. His first order of business is poaching an ice road legend out from the grips of Polar Industries. The bold move sparks an all-out war on the frozen frontier.
The war for ice road supremacy is heating up and Polar Industries is pushing their drivers to the absolute limit. . Art Burke must cross one of the longest winter roads in the world. Polar's top driver, Todd Dewey, is forced to dig himself out of mountains of fresh snow or risk a dangerous night in freezing temperatures. Rival, Darrell Ward, takes a load over a newly opened road littered with abandoned trucks frozen in time.
Polar Industries goes for the record books, sending driver Todd on a risky run to deliver the heaviest haul in company history. But will the weight prove to be too much on a tenuous ice crossing. Art's sent on a high stakes rescue mission, and finds the job is more than he bargained for. Lisa lands an exclusive contract over one of the wildest trails in Canada. And Darrell steals a load from Polar, leading to a clash between him and Mark.
Polar boss Mark Kohaykewych shakes things up when he brings new soldier Mike Simmons into the winter roads battle. But when the rookie's paired with company wildcard Art Burke, it makes for a rocky trip. Top dog Todd Dewey and rival Darrell Ward both hit a newly opened trail, but when Todd breaks down in the middle of nowhere, he might be out of luck and out of time. Polar veteran Alex Debogorski gets lost and must rely on pure instinct to find his way out. And new business owner Lisa Kelly faces an ice road trucker's nightmare on a dangerous crossing.

Polar's top dog Todd Dewey runs into trouble with a government contract. Truck problems have Polar driver Art Burke's season headed for the gutter. And ice road rookie Mike Simmons tries to get over the hump on his first solo delivery.
The battle gets down and dirty as the roads melt beneath the drivers' wheels. Art Burke fights to keep his rig above ground on a melting ice crossing, while fellow Polar driver Alex Debogorski fights his way up a mud covered mountain. Renegade rivals Lisa Kelly and Darrell Ward struggle on a trail at ground zero of the thaw, where getting stuck could sink their company for good.
In the midst of the early thaw, Darrell and Lisa struggle to make it home over the hardest hit trail on the winter roads system. Art and the King of Obsolete reunite to haul a giant double trailer over a slick path. Veteran Alex Debogorski races against the clock to deliver to a town in need before the road closes, while fellow Polar driver Todd Burke finds a unique way to conquer a melted ice crossing.
