Slinger, WI – Little Switzerland will host its annual Big Air Competition on Saturday, February 11. Alongside the event’s title sponsor, Horicon Bank, Little Switzerland will donate proceeds to Stars and Stripes Honor Flight.
The Stars & Stripes Honor Flight sends local veterans on a life-changing trip to Washington D.C. to experience a day of honor and thanks. Additionally, Little Switzerland is looking to celebrate those veterans and active-duty military by offering a free lift ticket during the day of the event to those with a military ID.

The event will feature several activities for spectators and skiers/snowboarders alike.
At 3 p.m., silent auction and raffles will be held, with all proceeds donated to Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. There will be live music from noon to 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
The feature event will be the “Big Air for Care” competition beginning at 7 p.m.
Similar to the Big Air event in the winter Olympics, local ski and snowboard athletes will showcase their skills on Little Switzerland’s big air jump constructed right in front of the lodge, with great spectator viewing right off the deck.
Little Switzerland is excited to be putting on the event again this year.
Jen Gilmore, general manager of Little Switzerland, said supporting the Honor Flight is close to her heart. “The Honor Flight means a lot to me as my dad is a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, and I was able to go on the Honor Flight with him. Because of that experience, I know how much this organization means to people and how impactful it can be in their lives,” she said. “We love being able to help the community and host this event every year.”
