A to B Rollerski
A to B Rollerski tells the story of Raimonds Dombrovskis’ incredible roller ski journey from Arctic to Baja, covering 4200 miles in 90 days. Raimonds is a successful Latvia-born athlete who emigrated to the U.S. at the age of 17. He is a seven-time U.S. biathlon champion and was included in the Team USA at the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary. However, a sudden life-threatening health condition forced Raimonds out of the competition shortly before the Olympics. At the moment, it seemed like all of his dreams fell apart. But then, instead of giving up, Raimonds recovers, packs up his VW van, and embarks on a 90-day roller ski trip from Inuvik, Canada, to Baja, Mexico. During this trip, Raimonds crosses paths with people who on an unconscious level help shape his future. Fast forward 26 years, and Raimonds, now an experienced adventure traveler in his 50’s, is back to Inuvik to relive the trip, try find the same people, and reflect on how his life turned out after A to B. It is a story about determination, belief, and never-ending search for adventure. Finalist – Yellowknife International Film Festival 2017. Feature Film Award – Wasatch Mountain Film 2017.
