I'm planning to hike from Elm over Panixerpass in September this year. Having spare luck getting info. Seems there an un-manned Panixerpasshutte there with 14 beds. Given that the trail time from Elm down to Ilanz looks to be maybe 10 hours I think it would be self forgiving to break the trek at the pass. Can anyone tell me anything about the hutte? My best hope is to carry some snacks and find shelter there.

Hello Jackdebear, and welcome to MySwissAlps,

it's just as you say, un-manned. It operates on a first come, first served basis. So it would be wise to arrive there early, say, before 4 pm. September should be allright, but you never know if a larger group shows up, esp. on weekends. Cookware and firewood available, as well as spring water, bring all your food, and sleeping bags. There should be a logbook for your registration, and a piggy bank for your fee (bring cash incl. small change). Honor system, play along, clean the mess, I assume you know all that.

Thanks. It's about what I expected. I'll be there mid-week and given that it's 4 or 5 hours from Elm I'm not expecting to find it full. Ran into the same plan at D'Ela CAS a few years ago. Left 20 chf in the box. Are you sure there are no blankets? There were at D'Ela. Wasn't planning on carrying stuff like that although I have it on my 'maybe' list.

I've never been there so I'm not sure of anything. Indeed, usually there are blankets and "hut shoes". So the sleeping bag you could take along is a rather a silk liner or similar. Who knows, there might even be beer bottles (again, compensate into the piggy bank).

Yes, except water bring your food along. Nobody will fix a breakfast for you up there.
