The Highly Decorated tree lighting ceremony honors the service and sacrifice of our veterans, active military and their families. The goal of Highly Decorated is to raise visibility and support for the Wasatch Adaptive Sports Veterans Program which focuses on getting veterans out of the home through recreational, social and educational activities. Local service members and their families are encouraged to join the Snowbird Community for a day of winter fun, followed by the tree lighting ceremony set to the tune of the five military anthems.
