In a blizzard during the Klondike Gold Rush in Alaska, the Lone Prospector finds refuge in a shack occupied by Black Larsen, a wanted criminal, and they are soon joined by Big Jim, another lost prospector. After drawing lots, Larsen goes out to search for food and stumble upon Jim's gold mine and decides to ambush him. After having eaten a boot, the Prospector and Jim leave, and the latter is knocked out by Larsen and looses part of his memory, while Larsen dies, falling off the nearby cliff. In the meanwhile, the Prospector reaches a town where he meets Georgia, a dance hall girl. To annoy Jack her admirer, she decides to dance with the Prospector, who falls in love with her. He invites her for dinner on New Year's Eve, but she does not show up, having forgotten about the invitation. She later looks for him and leaves him a message, but as the Prospector is about to find her, Jim arrives and insists he takes him back to the shack, from which he hopes to find the way to his mine. During the night in the shack, the wind blows it to the edge of the cliff and it remains balancing there, held up only by a rope. The two men eventually manage to get out just before the shack falls of the cliff. One year later, Jim and the Prospector are both rich and on a ship, where a journalist wants to take a picture of the Prospector in his tramp's clothes. Lost on the ship, he meets Georgia who happens to be on the same ship, and who believes he is a stowaway, but he is then identified as one of the two millionaires. The Prospector and Georgia are finally reunited.
