As the season opens, the race begins for VP Express and Polar Industries. Lisa and Darrell lead team Polar, Art and Todd set out to prove they can deliver with the best of them and Hugo and Alex team join forces on the frozen frontier.
Lisa and Art face a deadly shutdown on the ice; a feud between Darrell and Todd threatens to rip team Polar apart; and a heavy pad on thin ice has Alex searching for divine assistance.
A brutal storm descends on the winter roads, and frozen hell comes with it. Blinding winds, driving snow, and bone-chilling cold assault the ice road truckers as they fight their way through the storm of the century.
Darrell and Todd try to muscle through a storm, while the rest of the team is stranded in the wild with no help in sight and no hope on the horizon. The war between VP Express and Polar reaches a boiling point.
Art, Todd, and Lisa press their luck on buckling ice; Alex is left running on fumes and in desperate need of a lifeline; and Darrell goes toe-to-toe with his boss in a fight that'll be a game changer on the winter roads.
A defection in the ranks takes the battle for the winter roads to a whole new level; Hugh hatches a plan to crush the competition; and the pressure is on Todd and Lisa to up their game and push further out into the frozen frontier.
The truckers are pushed to the brink. Lisa and Todd tackle a remote road that's completely untouched; Darrell races to deliver loads to make up for lost time; and Art's mishaps on the ice roads could cost him his job.
Lisa and Todd tackle an untamed trail dubbed the 'Highway to Hell'; Darrell steals business out from under his former boss at Polar Industries; and a crash could mean the end of Alex's trucking season.
Darrell calls in a surprising reinforcement; Hugh has a brush with disaster; Lisa and Todd convoy into unchartered territory on a privately built, unmaintained road through the frozen frontier.
Darrell continues teaching Reno how to drive the ice roads; Art gets help on a trip far north; faulty wiring could sink Alex's load; Lisa and Todd hit a road block in their race to keep Polar in the load count competition.
With temperatures rising and the winter roads quickly melting away, it's a mad dash to the finish line. Lisa, Art and Todd embark on an epic journey, while VP travels treacherous roads in a late attempt to boost their load count.
