There are things that make sense in your life. Miryam is one of them. The contact with the universe is the contact with the essence of nature, the Vannino Valley and its peaks are a sublime mix, and Miryam is the witness. I remember the magical atmosphere and the friendships made between those mountains.

We stayed at the Shelter Miryam in the snow season, in April to be precise. In those days we found a nice company of young guys belonging to Cai Milano, a journalist from the most important Italian newspaper, Corriere della Sera (Lorenzo Cremonesi) and a nice family atmosphere. After the trip up the chairlift from Ponte Formazza and 45 minutes of easy ski mountaineering following some little red flags which marked the way, the welcome was warm and bright, in a panoramic room with a great sightseeing on the Lepontine Alps and on Arbola Peak, the most beautiful mountain in the area. Rooms and bathrooms (with a public use toilet and hot showers that refreshed us by the uphill), are spacious and clean. Dinner and breakfast are plentiful (an apple cake waited us in the morning!) with the only limitation in the choice for half board accomodation, which is a normal thing in shelters: the first with two dishes (one was a fantastic pasta Walser - the one that we chose - and a vegetable soup) and one second dish with meat plus a dessert (excellent homemade cake with chestnut flour). We appreciated a lot the use of compostable tableware and eco-friendly material instead of plastic that retains heat well the food. We do not know why they have not been used ceramic tableware. In addition to the radiators heated by a stove, the shelter is warmed up by a stove in brick while the lounge bar has a bioethanol stove, a clear sign of attention to the environment. The keepers are always smiling and professional, they know the territory, and thus have been able to tell us the safety tours to be done. The shelter is also a Mountain Rescue point (both the keepers are rescue team members). But the biggest surprise was to discover that Cecilia Cova, the manager, is also one of the few alpine guides woman with a great mountaineering curriculum in the alps and extra-alpine mountains (in the Andes). Unfortunately mobile phones do not work but there is a shelter phone and a free wi-fi web connection. The best quality of this shelter is the space that usually, in the high mountain, is reduced, while not lacking here. We hope to come back in the summer to do some climbing in the numerous rock climbing walls which we have talked about with the guys of the course of snowboard mountaineering of cai Milano.

We stayed one night, after hiking a couple of hours and found ourselves in a seriously disappointing situation for the following reasons: - in the common area (lounge) there was no fire place and the temperature was in the minus digits outside. We saw later in the evening the the fireplace room had been taken over by the hosts for private use with a sign stating that there was to be no entry. We had to make due with a small electric/ gas stove in front of the bar. - our room smelt strange. the blankets with musty (smelling of damp and mold) as were the pillows. The room was cold and the window looked out onto a dirty balcony filled with old pieces of furniture and broken glass. The room was also very cold, but as it was so cold outside, and there was only an electric heater, it was expected. - finallly and most upsetting was the meal we were served. After a long, tiring hike we were looking forward to a warm, comforting meal. We were served a hot dog (which was the consistency of sawdust inside) with canned peas and carrots which were seasoned with curry. The meal was a disgrace. We have never eaten so badly in any mountain refuge. We expected something energising and comforting. - in the morning we were served instant coffee for breakfast, while we watched the hosts and their friends drink freshly brewed coffee from the espresso machine. - all of our food was served in plastic. That is ridiculous. Not only was it environmentally irresponsible, they provided no explanation about the reason why they used plastic plates and glasses (perhaps the water pipes were frozen?) We have stayed in several refuges throughout Italy and never have had such an unwelcoming and uncomfortable stay. All in all, our experience was disappointing and we would NOT recommend visiting or staying at Rifugio Miryam.
