Fort Wainwright kicks off the holiday season Dec. 7 with its 2018 Holiday Party at the Birch Hill Ski and Snowboard Area. The annual event is held to celebrate the holidays with a Tree Lighting Ceremony where Col. Sean Fisher (right), U.S. Army Garrison Alaska commander, along with the help of a service member's child turned on the Christmas tree lights in both the lodge and at the top of the hill. Additionally, several participants helped welcome Santa to the event with a Santa Shred where skiers and snowboarders dressed as Santa Claus raced down the hill.
