Storyline

During the harsh winter of Canada's Northwest Territory, remote villages and work camps are cut off from the world. To keep them supplied, a tenacious group of long-haul truckers drive their rigs over hundreds of miles on ice roads cut across the surface of frozen lakes. Sometimes the ice cannot support the heavy rig, and driver and cargo plunge through the ice and sink to the bottom. Hitch a risky ride along with the Ice Road Truckers as they drive headlong into bone-chilling danger. Written by History Channel

Quotes

[opening narration: season 3]
Narrator: At the top of the world, there's a job only a few would dare. Last season, the dash for the cash was fought on the smooth playing field of Canada's Arctic ice. This season, two old pros join four of America's bravest truckers to tackle the tundra's deadliest ice passage. Just when you thought extreme trucking couldn't get more dangerous, ice road truckers take on Alaska. These are the truckers who make their living on thin ice.

Poor Narrator
19 August 2007 | by wacocgaSee all my reviews

The show is OK, but that narrator??!! Is he trying to imitate John Wayne or Howard Cosell? He has a halting, style so slow I could make a ham sandwich between words. He narrates many A&E shows, but for some reason his delivery is slower on I.R.T. He's also using a weird kind of accent he doesn't use on the other shows he narrates. The Characters are colorful enough, but I can't take the narration for very long. Apart from the narration, it's better than anything else during the summer rerun season on Sunday night. All in all, I think I'd rather spend a week on a crab boat and make twice as much as these guys without the expense of a big rig.
