Snowsport GB has struck a deal with the £350million development at Great Blakenham, which was recently granted government approval.

The SnOasis scheme is due to be complete in 2012 and become the first UK-based training home for the British Ski and Snowboard teams.

Mark Simmers, chief executive of Snowsport GB, said: "SnOasis is the most significant development for competitive snowsports, not just for Britain but on a global scale and is an unparalleled opportunity for the UK teams.

“We have the talent and ability in Britain to win Olympic medals. A centre of excellence with resources from all year training to in-house medical and fitness teams means we can replicate the success of the Beijing Olympics.”
