    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Will The Pad be a hotel or a hostel?2020-07-28T23:41:44+00:00

    The Pad will be a hybrid of hotel and hostel, with different room types for people with various budgets. We hope by having a variety of lodging options, you’ll find your place and use The Pad as a jumping off point for your adventures around Summit County.

    When do you plan to open?2020-07-28T23:50:05+00:00

    We had our topping out ceremony in July 2020. The Pad is currently on schedule to have our Grand Opening in Spring 2021. Stop by our site, see our progress, take a photo and tag us in a social media post!

    How much will it cost to stay at The Pad?2020-07-28T23:58:09+00:00

    Like any other hospitality property, prices will fluctuate depending on room type, season, and demand. Our base rate for an 8-bunk room is $45/person/night. We regularly assess other local hospitality options to stay competitive and ultimately be your top lodging choice. We pledge not take advantage of people stranded due to unforeseen circumstances, and we will work with you if you need an extra night. We’ll have promotional rates as we get closer to opening, so sign up for our newsletter, follow us on social media, and stay informed.

    Will there be an all female or male dorm?2020-07-29T00:02:54+00:00

    Yes! We will have a same-sex dorm lodging option. Please notify us when making your reservation and we’ll be sure to get you in the right spot. Your comfort is one of The Pad’s top priorities.

    Will I have to share a bathroom?2020-07-29T00:07:38+00:00

    Our suites and private rooms have their own bathrooms. The dorms have semi-private shared bathrooms. All shower units are private and have a personal, lockable changing area with hooks for your belongings.

    Will my stuff be safe in my dorm room while I’m out?2020-07-29T00:10:43+00:00

    All bunk beds will have two forms of lockable storage – a smaller one by your bed suitable for personal items like electronics, passports, and wallets; a larger compartment near your bunk that will fit larger items such as backpacks and luggage.

    I have a large group of friends; can we book a room to ourselves?2020-07-29T00:15:40+00:00

    Yes! We would love to accommodate your large group, depending on availability. We have 4, 6 and 8 person bunk dorms, and will be flexible to suit your group’s needs.

    Do you have storage for my gear or larger items?2020-07-29T00:18:58+00:00

    We have built-in lockable storage in the bunk rooms for our guests’ smaller items. We also have a guest only gear storage area outfitted to secure your bigger items such as ski boots, skis, bikes, golf clubs, etc. – complete with video surveillance. There will be entrances to gear storage from inside and outside of the building for convenient access, and only people with a room key will be able to enter the gear storage area.

    Is there a minimum age to stay in a dorm room?2020-07-29T00:25:51+00:00

    Yes. You must be 18 years or older to reserve and stay in a dorm room. Private rooms do not have an occupancy age requirement, but someone 18 or older will need to reserve and stay in the room with any minors.

    Will The Pad have an onsite dining option?2020-07-29T00:32:08+00:00

    Yes! We are still finalizing the details, but plan to have a grab-and-go concept. The cuisine will be inspired from a local chef’s menu and be mountainly delicious. Sign up for our newsletter, follow us on social media, and stay tuned for details as we finalize plans.

    I see your mascot Paddie on the website, are you pet friendly?2020-07-29T00:43:58+00:00

    We love animals and hope to be able to allow pets at The Pad. We are still working on our pet policy; however, allowing pets in select private rooms is our best option if we are able to allow them. We will have one furry friend on site, Paddie, to welcome guests, and she will be available for petting anytime!

      We added a realistic background to our original rendering, and it's making it feel all the more real! 

We can't wait to see all of the sheathing, the windows, and the details come together so that we can stop lusting over renderings and just stare at this beaut in real life 😍

      "Good news: Summit County is offering a new lodging option for travelers this Spring!"

It was great talking with @cbsdenver and Mountain Newsroom reporter @JamieLeary about progress at The Pad, why we're so passionate about bringing this to our community, and building hype for our Spring opening!

We are currently accepting bookings for private events, and will be offering booking through our website when we are able to announce our opening date. If you're considering a mountain event and are looking for spectacular views and a hip new venue, please reach out to lynne@thepadlife.com with any inquiries.

We will share the full video soon, but in the meantime, it can be found through a link on our Facebook page 😃

      Ski with a view, stay with a view! We've got it all right here at The Pad, and we can't wait to invite you in.

      We've got all of our rubber roofing in place! There are still some large gaps in our sheathing, however this is due to us needing to get some equipment and the concrete pump truck hose into the building to pour our last slabs. 

Himmelman Construction is moving right along, keeping us on pace through these winter months for that spring opening 😎

      What type of terrain do you prefer? Early morning fresh corduroy? A perfectly groomed park? Open bowls and cliff drops?

For me, it's the trees. I wanna shoop in and out of them all day long.

      Another angle shot of the back of The Pad. We love that these drone shots offer a glimpse into our surrounding neighborhood as well.

      Have you had a chance to get out and enjoy the fresh air lately? After a summer / fall full of smokey air conditions, the clean air feels so good!

      Gathering inspiration from our surroundings for one of our commissioned art projects. We are looking to achieve our bright and modern design plans by supporting as many local artists as possible.

      ICYMI: We just wanted to share again about our excitement to be part of Colorado's C-PACE program.

Colorado C-PACE facilitates financing for energy and water improvements in new and existing commercial buildings. Building owners are empowered to modernize building energy infrastructure, lower energy costs, increase building comfort and asset value. C-PACE projects also advance public policy goals to create local jobs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase renewable energy deployment.

Utilizing CPACE, The Pad was able to improve the building’s energy performance and reduce the hostel’s greenhouse gas emissions by over 465 tons. This is one of many steps we are using to achieve a triple bottom line of People Planet Profit.

      Happy New Year! 

We've wrapped up arguably the strangest year of our existence, and while things are not quite what they once were, we feel so hopeful for the future. We can't help but think about all who we get to host next year at The Pad, and the community that we will be able to gather with after each adventurous day in the mountains. 

For now, we wish you a joyous and healthy end to 2020, and will leave you with a vague teaser to keep your eyes peeled for a Spring 2021 opening announcement! 👀
      From the sky, it's easy to see why we are so excited, not only about The Pad, but about its incredible location. 

Near the highway, but not directly on it, the closest thing to our back door is the bike path and the Blue River. 

Within a 5-10 min walk, we're surrounded by the Rec Center, @silverthornepav, @lakedillontheatre, the library, and several local options for coffee, dining & outdoor activities: @redbuffalocafe, @sauceontheblue, @angryjamesbrewery, @cultivate_kitchen, @gorerangesports, @cutthroatanglers, @locals_liquors, @timerblinecraftkitchen and SO MANY MORE.
