Overview

At the top of the world there is a job like no other: a job to die for. Meet Hugh, Rick, Alex, Jay, T.J, and Drew -- the Ice Road Truckers. Just 28 inches of frozen water, years of experience, and quick reflexes separate them from doom. The draw: a year's worth of salary in just two months, plus bragging rights. The risks: breakdown, whiteout, subzero temperatures, and submersion in a frozen lake. In short, death. In Canada's Far North, $40 billion worth of gold and diamonds waits to be extracted from three jackpot mines. Critical equipment and supplies get to these Northwest Territories sites only one way: a 350-mile-long highway across permafrost and frozen lakes. As 26-year veteran Alex Debogorski puts it, it's a "dash for cash," with each trucker racking up as many runs as possible -- at up to $2,000 per trip -- in the eight short weeks before the frozen highway thaws. Along the way, they contend with the most treacherous conditions nature can throw at them while hauling tons of precious cargo. This mind-blowing series takes you through an entire perilous ice-road season, from the construction of the massive frozen highway to the arrival and preparation of the truck fleet; from the first enthusiastic runs to the risky final days when the highway grows unreliable; from deep-winter breakdowns to isolation and boredom on the road. Shot with 26 high-definition cameras in deepest winter, when saner people head south or stay indoors, this groundbreaking series depicts the rigors and risks of a previously unknown way of life. Ice Road Truckers debuted in June 2007 on the cable network The History Channel.
