"The Polar Bear,” Hugh Rowland quits his job at Polar Industries and joins team with a local dispatcher to start his own trucking company. Meanwhile, his former company plans to settle the score by hiring Ice Road Trucker experts Alex Debogorski, Lisa Kelly, and Darrell Ward. This season, both teams will vie to carry the most loads from Manitoba, Canada.
VP Express finally delivers their first loads of the season, but after a heated confrontation with owners Hugh Rowland and Vlad Pleskot, new hire Art Burke falls behind the bosses on the way back home. When his truck breaks down hundreds of miles from Winnipeg, Art suddenly finds himself stranded and alone. Polar snags a lucrative new contract, but it's over one of the most dangerous roads in Manitoba. Darrell Ward is the first to blaze the trail, but when he fails to conquer a mammoth incline, he's sent rolling backwards onto the ice. Fellow Polar drivers Lisa Kelly and Alex Debogorski follow close behind, but Lisa's broken wrist threatens to shut her down in the remote Canadian wilderness.
With loads needed to be hauled for their half million dollar contract, VP bosses Hugh Rowland and Vlad "The Mad Russian" Pleskot agree to keep struggling new hire Art Burke aboard. But they bring in new ice road hopeful Todd Dewey to keep freight moving and put pressure on Art to perform. In a convoy with Hugh and Art, Todd is put to the ultimate test as he faces the first ice crossing of his career. After rival Polar Industries snags a deal to haul loads over a newly opened road, Darrell Ward is sent out to test it, but his truck has a problem that could prove to be deadly.

In the war for supremacy on the winter roads, Polar Industries has pulled ahead of rival VP Express. But VP boss Hugh Rowland isn't ready to go down without a fight. To keep his half million dollar Wasagamack contract moving, Hugh hits the road on his own. But trouble strikes when his trailer brakes go out. VP rookie Todd Dewey gets sent on a solo mission behind Hugh. To prove he's got what it takes to run on North America's toughest roads, he's determined to catch up to the boss. Art Burke must watch the action from the sidelines as his truck is still suffering in the shop. Polar scores a lucrative contract hauling million dollar parts for a water treatment plant. Darrell Ward successfully completes the mission, but after truck problems delay his trip, Alex Debogorski is forced to leave a day late. Hauling a school bus, Alaskan icon Lisa Kelly must pass along a thin crossing only moments after a rival trucker pressures the ice with a forty ton load.
The battle for winter roads supremacy turns personal when VP Express boss Hugh Rowland steals a driver from Polar Industries and convinces the new hire to block his former employer's front gate with his truck. Alex Debogorski looks to lock in one of Polar's biggest contracts. But when a fire erupts in his cab, the forty-year veteran could lose more than just a paycheck. Polar boss Mark Kohaykewych shows his faith in Lisa Kelly when he sends the Alaskan icon on a challenging one-day round trip mission. At VP Express, drivers Art Burke and Todd Dewey must complete the longest haul of the season.

Meanwhile, rival VP Express' run over the melting roads leads to trouble when boss Hugh Rowland crashes into the ditch. Plus, Hugh shakes up the winter roads war when he makes Lisa an offer she might not be able to refuse.
As the end of the season nears, Polar tries to fulfill their contract over the unregulated road to Utik Lake. But when a jackknifed truck blocks the remote trail, it's up to Darrell Ward to move the wrecked rig all by himself. Lisa Kelly also braves the path to Utik with her heaviest haul of the season, and the melting roads give her a ride she'll never forget.

And Polar driver Art Burke is forced to break the cardinal sin of ice road trucking–never stop on the ice!

Racing to come out on top this season, both Polar and VP take on a late season mission to the remote village of God's Lake. Every driver joins the massive race, hoping their company comes out on top. But with the roads melting, getting in is only half the battle. Every driver must make it off the roads before they melt away or risk losing their truck and cargo to the Manitoba backwoods. It's the final dash for the cash, and only one company can win the load count.
