I was also told that the huts on Chimborazo were demolished last week, and wouldn't be usable for 4 months, though I was unable to find any evidence of this online.
I've been in touch with a local guide in Ecuador who confirmed that both huts on Chimborazo are currently rebuilding.
He also confirmed the new regulation.
We're biting the bullet on this one and hiring a guide. Total cost added to expedition is <$500. He is also providing transportation which will simplify our travel logistics. I'll post more details as I can. I'll be back from EC late January and plan to put together a comprehensive report on the current regulations, trail conditions, etc.
