Pick You Up (and Drop You Off)We offer a complimentary pick up and drop off service to our local bus stop, and charge a small fee if you want a personalised lift from the train station. Please give us advanced warning of your arrival so we can plan out our day and make sure we're on time.
So you can
Jump on the Local Bus ServiceMadarao has a local bus shuttle service that runs up and down the mountain for most of the day and into the evening. This is a great option for both accessing the resort, or once staying on the mountain and want to head out during the day or night.
And when you get home
We'll Pour You A Drink (Or Two)Relax and unwind after a hard day on the slopes and drink from our very own in-house bar - what more could you want? We serve a range of different drinks (hot and cold) and serve simple but delicious meals from our very own kitchen.
Get a good nights sleepYou need to rest to ski all day. Rest assured you'll get a good nights sleep here at Ringo Jam. With comfortable beds and warm rooms we've got just the rooms to make sure you have a great ski holiday here in the powder paradise of Madarao.
Our bunk rooms are perfect for friends travelling in a group or a family of four looking for a cheaper option to the mainstream. Our bunk rooms are warm and comfortable to ensure you a great nights sleep.
Our Double rooms feature a big king bed for a great nights sleep. As with all our rooms that are warm and comfortable, ensuring you’re well rested after a day on the slopes.
Great for 2 friends who want some extra privacy on their holiday. With all the necessaries you’d expect our twin rooms are your perfect getaway to rest those weary legs.
3 friends, a family of 3, or a couple and a third wheel… our triple room is a great for those travelling as a 3. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are warm: just what you need for your ski holiday.
A ski lodge wouldn’t be complete without its very own bar and at Ringo Jam we have a dully stocked bar so you can while away the nights with a glass of red or talk about the days adventure with friends over a beer (or two).
Don’t feel like going out after a long day on the slopes…? Well, don’t. At Ringo Jam we’ve got you covered with an assortment of delicious hearty western meals to fill you up and re-energise you for the following day on the hill.
We’ve fitted out our cozy lounge room with a Japanese style heated tatami mat, phone/device charging stations, and comfy rugs & pillows. Great space to chill out with friends and boast about the day that was on those powdery slopes.
Start the day right and after a free breakfast put on your dry ski clothes to head out into the powder filled paradise that is Madarao Ski Resort. After a powder filled day come home into the warmth and hang up those wet clothes. Easy!

"We are so sad to be leaving Madarao. It is a charming town, greatly enriched by a stay at Pension Ringo Jam. Comfortable rooms, generous service, help with organising and getting to and from activities, a fully stocked Manga library, fast wifi and truly incredible breakfasts and dinners." - LILY
"This is a wonderful Japanese Pension located 5 minutes walk from Madarao Ski Field and Madarao Hotel. With traditional showers and onsen some westerners may be perturbed. Don't be, as it is a wonderful experience. With the skiing so good at Madarao and the crowds so low compared to Hakuba giving this place a go is worth it." - DAN
