Outside the season, Decree 50/2002 is in force, which sets rates, and Resolution 950/2000, which establishes admission rules. The main points are:

– Climbers must submit before the Administration an affidavit where they assume all responsibility for the risks of the expedition, releasing from responsibility the Administration of Renewable Resources, its authorities and the Goverment of Mendoza.

– They will be responsible for all the expenses incurred in the case of a rescue procedure and/or medical care that might arise during the expedition.

– Upon request, climbers must submit a list of their specific technical equipment for winter ascent.

– The Administration could also request a security insurance policy or the necessary guarantees in case of an eventual rescue or evacuation.

– The climbers must submit a resume of ascents, which prove that they have experience in winter ascents. Anyway, the authorization is the prerogative of the competent institutions, who are not obliged to accept the request.
