A deadly combination of unpredictable weather on the North Slope has made Atigun Pass more dangerous than ever. Record snowfall mixed with now warmer temperatures has turned this wicked pass into a devil's slide--slippery than ever and at all time high for avalanche risk. Heavy-hauling ace Jack Jesse is first out of the gate with one of the most critical loads of the season--two 46,000-pound tanks worth $300,000. These loads will be a challenge. Jack calls on friend and fellow heavy-haul expert Carey Hall to help out. But disaster strikes when one of the giant tankers slips off the forklift and slams into the ground. Will their assignment be over before it's even begun? After a chance meeting in Coldfoot, Alex and Hugh compare load counts. Hugh is one load ahead and Alex is eager to catch up to him. He is the first out of the gates for Deadhorse, but unexpectedly runs into trouble on Atigun Pass when another trucker tries to pass him.
