  • Economic conditions have changed drastically the last years in Greece. Resuming about crises according to ski business and market in Greece, the results are that the status of distributing labels for the Greek market broke down. There are no companies that trust any whole seller and the whole sellers they don’t trust the retailers in the Greek market.
  • That’s why we believe that the only way to continue doing business in the Greek ski market is to cooperate with some of the healthiest retailers in the Greek market and proceed to direct imports from the companies.
