The Phat Packers

The guys at the Phat Packers cater to the frothers amongst us and know exactly what it takes to have the raddest Hakuba experience possible (they’ve been doing it for years at Iwatake’s most popular accommodation, the Phat House). You’ll get a continental breakfast every morning before chasing the Tsugaike Powder, access to two restaurants, and two bars, and be amongst other like-minded frothers the entire stay.

Ski in Ski Out

The Phat Packers is Tsugaike’s premiere ski-in-ski-out location. Walk out the door and you’re 20m from the chair lifts and 100m from the gondola on the main Tsugaike slope. The inter-resort shuttles are close by and that Phat Packer staff runs evening shuttles so you can enjoy the night life in other areas.
