Having just spent 3 nights in the Phat House. Large comfortable room, warm and cosy lounge / bar room. Cam and Bron welcomed us like family, and made our stay enjoyable, hassle free. Would recommend to all who want to visit the Hakuba area. David (New Zealand)

The Phatty is definitely the place to stay if you're heading to hakuba to shred the pow. Great for cruising solo or touring with a whole group of mates. Minutes walk to Iwatake, free shuttles to the other hills if you want, sick jib park in the back yard. Big rooms, huge common area to hang out and meet new...
