About Us

Where to begin… The Sporthouse began in 1967 on Rt 44 in Canton, CT specializing in Skis and Tennis. In 1993 The Sporthouse expanded by adding Fattys, a building in New Hartford, CT that specialized in Snowboards. Back then, Skiiers and Snowboarders could not and would not shop at the same establishment, hence the 2 stores! Finally in 1999 the 2 stores converged into one, the original building of the store in 1967. We are still here today, 3 generations deep, doing the same thing we always did- Keep providing the best service we can for our customers, old and new, and keep doing what we love!

At our Storefront you can find 2 levels of Skiing and Snowboarding excellence. We provide a full service boot fitting floor, full service tuning shop, walls full of different brands of skis and snowboards, apparel for all ages and styles, and a staff unlike anywhere else. We have been “family” run for 50 years now, meaning our staff is our family. We take pride in our knowledgeable, and experience staff to give you the best experience possible here at Fattys!
