Nevado Copa is easily seen from Huaraz. It is the easiest of the 6,000 meter peaks in the range it is frequently skied. If you want to ski a big mountain, this is the perfect choise.
From the outlet of Lejiacocha Lake (4,100 mt) you cross through moraine to the glacier which emnates from the upper portion of the mountain.
This glacier is below two rocky massifts to find the easiest ascent
