Plans for a 300m winter sport complex in the UK have received the backing of the British Olympic Association.

Proposals have been made to construct the SnOasis centre in an abandoned quarry in Suffolk.

If built, it would be the world's biggest indoor real-snow ski dome, with a piste 100m high and 500m long.

BOA chief executive Simon Clegg said: "I am sure the winter sports community will see it as an opportunity to develop next-generation Olympians."

The plans also include facilities for other winter sports such as snowboarding, ice hockey, speed skating, ice and dry climbing walls, bobsleigh, luge and cross-country skiing.
