Thank you so much and I wish Happy Christmas and New Year to you and yours!
Well, Norway ranks high on most criteria for quality of living, society and institutions, and also in economic terms. But Luxembourg usually top some of the lists.
It's probably very hard to compare prices for housing, but as everything, it's high when using exchange rates. Housing in cities are especially high, and holiday housing in popular winter sport areas. You may mean renting, which may also be high.
Olympic Ski slopes (cross country and jump: central Lillehammer, slalom: Hafjell, downhill: Kvitfjell) is a bit north of Lillehammer, in Gudbrandsdalen valley. You can ski, also slalom, around Oslo and other places, not that expensive.
Do you plan to come back? Do you ski, or want to ski?
