Alex is part of a last great push to get some critical loads up the ice before it's too late. In his convoy is the heaviest load ever to cross the ice---a 100-ton electrical unit for the Diavik mine. If this load damages the ice, it could be the last run of the season. Rick, who may be suffering from frostbite, has hit his limit with driving a truck in forty below with no heat and needs to make a tough decision. The most unlikely survivor is rookie T.J. He's suffered some of the worst blows of the season, and although it's not yet over, he's already feeling like a seasoned veteran as he heads out on his 18th load across melting ice and a road that will soon disappear.

MGM is breaking down camp and moving every last piece of equipment to a new base at Langley to continue exploring for natural gas. While Alex and Hugh continue to prove themselves, Rick's only drive is into the repair shop where he spends two days doing nothing but sitting around. Fellow southerner Drew finally takes his first big rig solo on the northern ice--to deliver junk food. Northern veteran Eric picks up a survival shack from the new site at Langley to return to Inuvik. His load is too high to fit under the power lines in Inuvik, so he spends the night on the ice with his load just outside of town. Just as the trucks are ready to roll for the big move, another storm strikes. Jerry is concerned about dangerous whiteout conditions. With lives and money on the line, the risk is too great and the move is called off. Details

This means that it's all hands on deck for the demobilization of the drilling sites at Langley and Mallik, which must be broken down and hauled away before they're swallowed up by Arctic waters. Northwind owner Kurt leaves his office behind and jumps into a truck to contribute to the effort. Kurt meets a convoy of "highway maggots" on the way and has nothing but choice words for this group of "scab" drivers from the south. Trucker Jim volunteers for a dangerous mission; he'll haul three sled trailers at once, carrying two diesel tanks and drilling supplies in one mega-load. With the close of the season in sight, Eric and Hugh continue to vie for the title "King of the Ice Road."

At 160,000 pounds, the base must be broken into separate loads, the combined weight of which makes them the heaviest--and most dangerous--loads the ice will face all season. Veteran trucker Bear Swenson and Arctic Ice Road rookie Alex Debogorski are entrusted with the challenge. This is the heaviest load of Alex's ice road career. Compounded by on-going and increasing health problems, the pressure on this trucker is rising fast. Details

For a second time, Jerry attempts the MGM camp move, including the transport of an expensive 50-ton derrick. He's assigned two of his best truckers to the task, which includes a risky practice called "Two Trucking," where the cargo is simultaneously loaded onto two trucks--one to provide the main power, and the other to keep the derrick from fishtailing around curves in the road. This awkward and massive load could tax the ice to its breaking point. At the same time, Alex embarks on a run to Aput, an unfamiliar location. When he misses his turn off, he is lost, confused, and out of communication in a place where one wrong turn can find him on fragile ice. Details

Rick is irate about a 5-day-long trip that his bosses assign him, and his frustration mounts along with his threats to quit. Alex's health continues to deteriorate and he must be med-evaced to the Yellowknife hospital, his fate unknown. Details

One wrong move could spell disaster for Hugh, but also for rookie Devon Neff, who makes his debut run at a time when the road is at its most fragile. And as the action escalates on the road, Rick finds himself in familiar territory - Gruben's garage. He has loads to pick up, but yet again this season, they'll have to wait until his truck is repaired. Details

     Back for a second season, the truckers venture to the most isolated and dangerous ice roads in North America, gunning their rigs over frozen rivers and ocean, 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle. For a brief window of time each year the waterways freeze over, allowing engineers to create temporary roads over unforgiving terrain. This is the edge of the Earth, the last frontier for vital natural gas exploration, where the extraction of the trillion-dollar reserve trapped beneath the ice depends on the equipment that the truckers are hauling. Extreme Arctic conditions prevail in this unforgiving climate, but this year, driving over frozen ocean means no land for miles around, just ice all the way to the horizon. The truckers must tackle titanic forces of nature. The road is unstable, constantly shifting and breaking apart beneath the tires, creating tremendous cracks that can swallow a truck. It is a job that only a few would dare. Titans Hugh and Alex and upstarts Rick and Drew are ready to conquer the Arctic roads alongside the local veterans, but each man will face new challenges on and off the ice. Who will survive and who will fall prey to the treacherous ice roads of the Arctic? Details

     Warming temperatures are causing overflows all over the ice road, and with water rushing through cracks in the ice, hauling loads just got a lot more dangerous. Jody and Brett take on the challenge of removing the 66-ton derrick from the Langley site. The massive rig will have to be two-trucked; one truck will make the entire journey traveling backwards. Although maintenance crews create a detour around the overflow, Jody and Brett still need the help of a pilot car to navigate their double load along its winding turns. Forced to wait for the pilot car to arrive, the truckers sit with 200,000 pounds of dead weight on weakened ice, with freezing ocean water below. Hugh is hauling one of the only standard-sized loads of the day, so while everyone else is stuck driving at 15 mph, the Polar Bear is running full steam ahead. Unencumbered by speed restrictions, Hugh is trying to use his last few days in the Arctic to secure his reputation as the only Southern driver who has what it takes to make it in the North. Details
