The first ski store to open in Arachova was Pappos-Baldoumis, which now bears the name SnowRepublic and is found in a new ultramodern space at the entrance of the village next to Arachova inn hotel.
Since 1978, visitors to the winter resort have found whatever they need on the shelves for their favourite winter sport.
Here you can find all the items a skier needs (beginner or advanced) from skis, boots, bindings and masks to clothing items, such as jackets and trousers, accessories (socks, thermals, hats, gloves), protective wear (helmets, ski and bicycle pads) and repair tools. On the second floor of the new store you will also find a section with boot fitting!
At Snowrepublic, apart from winter ski equipment, you will also find sportswear such as swimming apparel, tennis rackets, cycling equipment and sneakers.
