The centrepiece of this resort is a ski slope measuring 100 metres high, 80 metres wide and half a kilometre long. The £350 million development includes:
  • facilities for 13 winter sports including ice skating, ice and dry climbing walls, bobsleigh and the only speed skating circuit in Britain

  • 4-star 350-bed hotel and conference centre catering for 1000 delegates
  • cinemas, casino, restaurants, bars and cafes, night club and bowling centre
  • sports retail outlets

The resort will also have facilities to allow the establishment of a centre of excellence for a number of winter sports disciplines.

Godfrey Spanner, MD of developer, Onslow Suffolk said “SnOasis will be one of the most exciting developments in the world and will provide people with a truly unique winter sports experience and with its centre of excellence will help develop future winter Olympic champions. As importantly, it will provide huge regeneration and tourism benefits for the local area, providing up to 1500 new jobs.
