What the new slopes in Wyller will look like. Superpipe and Multi Arena at the bottom.

You can fly in to Oslo airport Gardermoen OSL from most European citys, and major American and Canadian hubs. From the airport it's only 22 minutes to the city centre with the airport express train. Cost NOK 200. The bus takes about 55 minutes and is a less expensive option, NOK 150.
Most of the low cost airlines fly into Rygge and Torp Airports  about 1 hour 15 minutes          ( NOK 140 ) and 1 hour 50 minutes ( NOK 200 ), by bus from Oslo.
Take the Holmenkollbanen ( subway/tram ) to Voksenkollen station ( 20 minutes from city centre ). From there either take the minibus ( FREE!!! ) to the ski centre ( In the weekends there's a free bus service ), or you can walk up to the ski centre in about 10 minutes, it's not steep.
If you're staying in Oslo for a few days you have many options regarding bus/tram/subway passes.
A 24 hour pass is NOK 75, a week pass NOK 220. A single ticket NOK 30 ( bought in advance ) or NOK 50 ( bought onboard )

Many options, from hostels to 5 star hotels. Hotels.com and other sites will be useful when hunting for a reasonable hotel. If you want to stay in the centre of Oslo prices may be a little bit higher than in the outskirts, but not by much.

In Oslo, one can find anything from McDonald's to restaurants with stars in guide Michelin.
On the resort : Tryvannstua, a cosy log cabin is located at the bottom of Tårnbakken/Tryvannskleiva. They serve a legendary bluberry soup and many other dishes, from simple to more advanced courses. Their special rolls are my favorite. Later in the season it's a great place to have a snack or a full meal outdoors. Open all year.
By the Top-Centre : A kiosk that serves a surprisingly large range of snacks, waffles, rolls and sandwiches. Lots of cold and warm alco-free beverages. I'll have at least one cappuchino here every day.
By the new children/beginners area a new "keep warm" place will open January 2012. It will feature a cafe, rumours  say they'll serve beer, and a bakery. Also a play-room for the kids.
By the bottom of Wyller : A cafe serving small dishes, hot and cold alco-free beverages.
Close to the resort : Frognerseteren, a big dragonstyle cabin with a variety of dishes and beverager. Spectacular view over Oslo - a must for first time visitors.
Holmenkollen Restaurant is located close to the Holmenkollen ski arean. A luxury restaurant with both  traditional and international courses and a huge winecellar. Also a spectacular view over Oslo. If you can afford it, it's a perfect way to end a long day of skiing in Oslo Winterpark.
In downtown Oslo I would recommend a stroll in Grünerløkka, a part of Oslo with a bohemian feeling to it. Many small restaurants, bars and pubs all over this area, from the inexpensive to the more costly . A good place to do "people watching". The same can be said about our docklands, the Aker Brygge and central Oslo in general. You'll not walk thirsty or hungry in Oslo.

Oslo ( Norway in general ) has a high cost of living, expect to pay more for everything than in the US or Canada, and slightly more than most European capitals. Don't let that scare you away, though, deals can be found.
For the 2012-2013 Season : New 6 seater chair lift in Wyller.
For the 2011 - 2012 season : 3 new slopes in Wyller, all red. The longest run will now be 1550 m long.
New superpipe with its own lift. 200 m with a height of 6.5 m (22 feet).
New beginners/handicap area  with 2 magic carpets and 2 lifts. New cafeteria/service building.
This increases the groomed ski area with more than 40%.
