New to Calgary

New to Calgary?

If I am moving to Calvary, I want a real estate agent to know about the schools, or that you can connect me with someone that does know. And since I am an outdoors type of person, I want to know what city parks and recreation facilities are available. What types of winter sports are there? How cold is it in the winter?

If I have to travel as part of my business, what sort of airport hub do you have? Do you have many direct flights? Is the airport easy to access? Is it open 24 hours a day?

The types of home financing available are also important. If they are different from other places I have lived, I will need guidance. For example, what sort of down payment is required? Is a 30 year fixed interest rate loan available?

If you can answer those questions, I think you can really light up your website.

Barry's Response - For schools have a look at either the public school system - http://www.cbe.ab.ca/ the separate (Catholic) schools, http://www.cssd.ab.ca/ or some of the local private schools - http://www.calgaryarea.com/schools/private_schools.htm

Here are the city recreational services - http://www.calgary.ca/portal/server.pt?open=512&objID=201&PageID=0&cached=true&mode=2&userID=2

The airport departures arrivals schedule for a typical day shows no activity between 1:30 and 6 am. Here's more info - http://www.yyc.com/Default.aspx?cid=329 The current non-stop flights are listed on this page: http://www.yyc.com/Default.aspx?cid=60&lang=1
