Life is about exploring, experiencing and being free... be active... live an Active Life.

At Active Life Madarao, we take care of everything from sport, to food, to rest so you can focus on your adventure. Active Life is not a hotel, it’s an awesome curated experience.


Ski the trees through Madarao’s famous powder. Whether you prefer groomed or ungroomed runs, Madarao’s 30 ski runs have it all. Then if that’s not enough, Madarao connects directly to Tangram to add another 15 runs – just ski left at the top.


Boot up with an espresso, power up on a hearty breakfast from our buffet then hit the powder. When you return from a hard day of skiing enjoy an exquisite dinner prepared by our accomplished chef.


After a long day of skiing share your GoPro video’s over a glass of your favourite wine/ beer in the bar. Enjoy a piping hot bath to relax those weary muscles, then follow it up with a traditional massage in our spa.


Enjoy a great night’s sleep in our newly renovated rooms. Our beds can be curated just for you, let us know if you’d like your bed to be Hard, Firm or Dream.
