I did live in Edmonton before here and have a pretty good handle on prarie winters. Vacations are essential or you lose your mind.
Wondering which part of town is less likely to be a residential rabbit warren. My experences in the NE corner were of an oatmeal like sprawl of drab, non-commital colour schemes with limited entrances and exits to developments. Not so pleasant.
I did like the older neighbourhoods of South Edmonton with the mature trees and the park space. Is there an older part of Calgary as well? What is it called and which quadrant is it? Is it family friendly or a bohemian urbania like the Cambie and 16th area of Vancouver?
Basically there are a lot of nice inner city areas, with mature trees, etc. On the north side, places like Rosedale, Sunnyside, etc., are nice. If you move out a little ways from the inner city, you would probably like the North west or South west part of the city. Again, lots of mature trees etc. in some of these areas. A lot of these areas are a short commute to downtown. Also, the LRT access from the south, and soon from the very west side of Calgary is good (they are constructing the West leg of the LRT right now).
You are right about the North East - it isn't a desirable area. In the South east, there are some really nice areas down around Willow Park for example. Other areas in the South East, such as Dover or Forest Lawn are dumps.
