A small convoy heads out on the winter roads with oversize loads, but this treacherous journey over nearly impossible terrain will be the ultimate test for Lisa Kelly and Reno Ward. Meanwhile, Art Burke attempts to cross a frozen lake; Alex Debogorski helps a stranded fellow trucker; and a snowy road gives Todd Dewey all he can handle.
At the top of the world, in the coldest parts of North America, there is a whole trucking industry that most people had never heard of. Some communities and industries can only be reached for a few months each year, when rivers or seas freeze over. Ice Road Truckers features the activities of drivers who operate trucks on seasonal routes crossing frozen lakes and rivers in remote arctic territories in Canada and Alaska.
Seasons 1 and 2 are based in Canada's Northwest Territories, first the diamond mines around Yellowknife and then the Mackenzie River ice road from Inuvik. Seasons 3 and 4 move to the USA and focus on Alaska's improved but still remote Dalton Highway, supplying the oilfields in Prudhoe Bay. Seasons 5 and 6 split coverage between Alaska and the winter roads Winnipeg, in Canada's Manitoba, while Alex heads farther north than ever before on the deadly Dempster.
