According to Norse mythology, Valhalla is the beautiful home of heroes
slain in battle. Fortunately for snowshoers, this Valhalla is no myth, and
visiting it doesn’t require mortal combat. Lake Valhalla is a wondrous basin
nestled alongside the Paciﬁc Crest Trail (PCT) just north of Stevens Pass.
Tucked between Mount McCausland and Lichtenberg Mountain, the lake
appears remote and isolated.
