Whether it is entirely real or not is certainly something that can be debated. I have watched every season, I enjoy the entertainment value. The need to make those deliveries is real, so based on that I tend to think most of it is real, and then they edit the footage to make the story, capture the drama, etc.

Side note, I was traveling to Alaska for business for a while, and while I was there one year, we went to a minor league hockey game, and Lisa Kelly was there signing autographs. So we got an autograph and a few pics with her. She is smaller in real life than she is on tv.

Thanks. I guess we just slipped a little off the icy road.

you can debate whether it's real or but living in northern ontario i KNOW it's real and it's amazing the abuse a truck will take and what people will do for the right price. There are at least 30 to 40 communities that only have winter roads to bring supplies for the remainder of the year.
Their are companies in Thunder bay Ontario that use tractors like Cat-rn has as an avatar to haul cargo trains north in the winter that go for 12-16 days round trip
As for going on the ice I raced cars for years with studded tires and have gone over 100MPH in an 1985 Mazda RX7 racing , it was a $$$$ blast
check out

I'm the black and yellow mazda, the car filming is a 4x4 subaru and the car in front is an Audi 4x4, yes my mazda flies!
so in short it's all real
Don

This past March I was on the Dalton Highway, aka Ice Road, from Fairbanks to the Arctic Circle. It sure was bumpy and not much out there. Coming back it was snowy and a little hairy at times. The road is narrow and sure wouldn't take much to go off the side. But, shortly after crossing the Yukon River we did see the most wonderful display of northern lights! It was worth the ride and biting cold we endured while outside. The sky opened for only about 30-40 minutes and then it was gone. The reds and greens were outstanding.
