Popocatepetl is a volcano with forested slopes and a snow-capped cone and large crater. It is the second highest peak in Mexico at 17,887 feet (5452 metres) behind Pico de Orizaba at 18,405feet. The name Popocatepetl is Aztec for Smoking Mountain, and is often, conveniently, shortened to Popo. Popo and its neighboring volcano Iztaccihuatl (17,342 feet.) dominate the sky southeast of Mexico City. They are located less than fifty miles from the city, and are separated from each other by a ten mile ridge. Popo's last major eruption was in 1947, although on December 21st 1994, it awakened from dormancy, spewing gas and ash, which was carried by the wind as far as Puebla, 25 miles east. Surrounding towns were evacuated, and scientists have since been closely monitoring Popo for signs of a possible eruption. The first recorded ascent of Popocatepetl was by the Tecuanipas tribe in 1289. The first Spanish ascent of the mountain was an expedition led by Diego de Ordaz in 1519. Emperor Moctezuma sent ten warriors to climb the mountain sometime between 1502 and 1519. Only two of these warriors survived the climb.

Recensioni dei visitatori di Popocatepetl

El Pico de Orizaba da Mexico scrive:

I live in Mexico City and love to ride my snowboard at the Popocatepetl Ski Resort on weekdays when it's not so crowded. But, on weekends, Ay Caramba!, watch out for the hordes of out of control hombres riding switch on the west facing slopes. This area has a fantastic vertical (better than Whistler-Blackcomb) and the view from close to the summit of Popo of Iztaccihuatl and of Paso de Cortez is a view unlike any other North American ski and snowboard resort can offer. Because the lift capacity is known to be numbero uno in Mexico, the lift lines are always short. The Popo Ski Patrol keeps the avalanche hazard to a minimum with their multi-port avalanche canons. The Popo Ski Patrol is one of the few in North America that uses avalanche rescue cats instead of avalanche rescue dogs. The Popo Ski Resort has a really good terrain park. The Mexican cuisine at the mountain village restaurants is fantastic. Many of the luxury hotels in the mountain village use natural hot springs for their spas and swimming pools. Overall, a five out of five star resort!
