Good Times 

 Shared With Great Friends

 In The Deepest Powder in the World. 

  • We Will

    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 Service

    Madarao 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.
  • And then

    Get a good nights sleep

    You 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.

Good times, with great friends in the deepest powder in the world!


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.

Dry Room

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!

    - RHYS

  • "Really nice vibe and everyone is super friendly/staff super accommodating had the best time there. Warm and welcoming staff, super accommodating for all our needs. Perfect location not a far walk at all from the slopes, but the host drops you there anyway in the morning which was convenient."


  • "Cozy place to stay with friendly staff. Morning Breakfast was a great selection and changed up slightly each morning which was awesome. The bed was super comfy and cozy, alot bigger than many other places we stayed and staff was really friendly and helpful!"


  • "Relaxed, friendly and peaceful. Ringo Jam is a small, boutique hotel with comfortable beds, spacious rooms and very well maintained facilities. Pete is a generous host, driving us the 5 mins to the ski lift, organising our passes and also taking us out of town to the best Onsen and local restaurant."

    - AMANDA

  • "The staff were amazing and accommodating. Super helpful with recommendations.The property was reasonably close to the ski resort and restaurants."

    - JED

  • "This was such a good cozy bed and breakfast spot in Madarao. The place is owned and run by a lovely Aussie couple. It’s really cozy and homey. Even though the bathrooms are shared, they’re very clean and the showers had insanely hot water and great pressure. Location is great, short walk to the ski lifts and rentals. 10/10 would recommend Ringo Jam to anyone heading to Madarao."
