With dark winter just around the corner, Alaskans continue preparing for the winter months. In Noorvik, Chip builds a freight sled for winter travel. A blizzard strands Sue in Fairbanks and she must brave a notoriously dangerous road to get home to Kavik. In Eagle, Andy and Kate get their sled dogs ready for the winter and put them through their paces. And in Chandalar, Glenn tries to vary his diet and to harvest more meat for the long winter ahead.
