Ice Road Truckers season 5 episodes list:
Hugh and Rick roll deeper into the Canadian outback, while a dangerous overflow may leave Alex stranded in the wilderness. Dave's training run with Tony reaches the boiling point. Lisa Kelly goes on a rescue mission. And Maya's first look at the Haul Road may be enough to send this rookie back to the big city.
Dave's hot temper may cost him his second, and final shot to become an Ice Road Trucker . Maya fights to prove she belongs behind the wheel. Tony visits the scene of the accident that nearly cost him everything, and Lisa gets a shot to redeem last year's biggest failure. In Canada, the rough roads pound Hugh's rig into submission. And a wrong turn sends Rick on a journey 100 miles down the Winter Roads, driving in reverse!
Hugh and Rick are hauling the biggest load ever to travel up the Canadian ice roads! The record breaking journey spans three days and right out of the gate, Rick's amateur antics cause problems for the Convoy, which puts Hugh in the hot seat. Also in Canada, Alex has challenges of his own fighting a massive oil leak over the unforgiving Canadian Ice Road that's as hard on the driver, as it is the truck. A breakdown on this Canadian bush road means a night spent in the truck in -20 below zero temperatures. Back in Alaska, two Dalton newcomers are finally heading up the highway. Maya Seiber spent three years as a trucker in New York, but Alaska's a long way from Manhattan and the Dalton has some surprises in store for this rookie. Meanwhile, Dave Redmon is finally alone in the truck for his haul to Prudhoe, but after his big blowout with Tony, the Carlile bosses are keeping a close eye to see if he has what it takes to join their elite team of truckers.
While hauling loads north, the Ice Road Truckers hammer away at the weather, accident, and truck obstacles in their way. As Hugh and Rick deliver the largest load ever trucked on Manitoba's ice roads, their convoy comes to a sudden halt after downing a high-voltage power line. Lisa's dream of becoming a heavy haul push trucker depends on her ability to sync up with a new partner. Meanwhile, hoping for an easy run to pump up his load count, Alex pins up to ten tons of trouble. And haul road rookie Dave takes matters into his own hands to make a renegade roadside repair.
Rick and Hugh continue their marathon run, but the Winter Roads wreak havoc on the trucks leaving Hugh stuck on the side of the road.
Having spent the night in Coldfoot, Lisa and Tony head north with their modular buildings. On the tundra south of Prudhoe, Lisa barely avoids an oncoming truck and slides partway off the road. The two work together to help her get going again, and Tony drives lead as they complete the delivery. In light of this incident, the question of her transfer to the heavy haul division is left up to the Carlile bosses. In Fairbanks, Maya picks up a load of cable spools and starts out with Phil riding along. An exhaust leak into the cab sends the truck to the shop; once it is repaired later that morning, she starts the run again, ignoring disparaging radio talk from Dave. She drives the entire way to Prudhoe herself without incident. In Manitoba, Hugh and Rick have stopped at night to fix the problem with Hugh's trailer suspension. Although they reinflate its air bags enough to let him keep driving, he soon gets three flat tires on the rough roads and both stop for the night. The next morning, Rick drives the last 50 miles alone to deliver his load and bring help. Hugh, meanwhile, amuses himself by shooting at some of his old food supplies with a rifle he has brought along. Rick and other truckers drive back to pick up Hugh's load and swap trailers so he can take a usable one back to Winnipeg. Once Rick has the cargo, he makes a late-night run to bring it in. Finding an overturned passenger vehicle in a ditch, Alex gives its two occupants a ride and has to put up with their constant arguing as he finishes his run.
As the season reaches the halfway point, drivers are desperate to pull ahead in the dash for the cash. Hugh, Rick, and Alex, struggled to make deliveries to the remote villages of northern Manitoba, but now, the return trip over 880 miles of Canadian wilderness will push them past the breaking point. In Alaska, the biggest storm of the season descends on the Dalton--forcing every driver to face a brutal whiteout or risk falling behind in the load count. Lisa Kelly deals with the fallout of driving her oversize load into the ditch.
In Alaska, the storm of the decade pounds the Dalton, sending the truckers' hauls into chaos. After her demotion from heavy haul status, Lisa is determined to deliver her load
Harsh winter weather has left Lisa stranded in Prudhoe Bay. Dave is in a convoy with Maya and Tony, he tests their patience before leaving them behind. In Canada, Rick's frustration reaches a boiling point and he snaps, while Hugh rescue's Rick's truck, again.
Hugh and Rick face an obstacle that has the ice road blocked, until Hugh decides to clear a path, while Alex gets too close for comfort with a parked car.
It's the first warm day of spring and the ice roads are getting dangerously slick. Hugh and Rick hauling tankers with diesel fuel, run into Alex at a fuel stop and decide to convoy north together. When Hugh and Rick see a crashed truck and decide to stop and strap down, Alex blows by and runs solo, much to the ire of Hugh. Later, Alex surprises Hugh with a late Christmas present. Over in Alaska Lisa and Tony haul record wide loads. Maya gets into trouble on Koyukuk's steep grades.
Dave Redmon is at odds--yet again--with his bosses, this time over making a rookie error, and Maya faces freezing brakeline issues as she dashes down the melting ice roads
In Alaska, Lisa and Maya help a stranded driver get back on the road. Tony gets a surprise from Carlile while Dave continues his descent into isolation. In Canada, Hugh and Rick keep up their load count with backhauls. Alex has to deal with unstable freight but also scores a backhaul, keeping the race with his rival close.
With the end of the ice road fast approaching, the Ice Road Truckers are sprinting to the finish. But they've got obstacles. A polar bear standoff at Prudhoe Bay tables the plans for oil production and ties up Carlile's loads at the most crucial time of the season. A veteran trucker's calculated risk puts his life and livelihood in jeopardy. One rookie's sent packing as the other picks up the slack. And the Dalton's favorite daughter gets her groove back.
The season end is approaching and so is the load count in the Dash for the Cash. Hugh and Rick has trouble in Canada, will Alex take over the lead? Maya the Dalton-rookie convoys with Lisa to the remote and isolated Nuiqsut village. Tony deals with deteriorating road conditions and Dave leaves Alaska for Alabama.
