Stayed here for about a month and loved every minute! The lodge is walking distance to Iwatake and there are free shuttles to the other resorts. The rooms were spacey and very modern, whilst the bar downstairs bar was always vibing. All of the staff were really great, as was the food! I'll definitely be back!

The Phat House is everything and more. I arrived mid March into what I'm told has been a rough end to the season as there was more rain than snow but that didn't affect the hospitality of The Phat House Crew. I had originally booked a dorm room and as the snow wasn't as good lots of people had departed... More

Stayed at the Phat House for around a month this season, It was a delightful stay!! The House was flawless and could not fault the people that run the place! One great thing about this place is that your 5 minutes walk from iwatake gondola! Will be returning next season for more of that pow!!

I stayed in the 10 person dorm and immediately found it was a perfect place to meet people and go riding with, such is the great vibe there. Awesome food (and big), great bar/chill out area and the staff are absolute legends - very easy-going who are always trying to help you out in anyway. The huge bonus is the... More
