I am moving to Ft Collins/Loveland in the Spring of 2011. I need to get a few things answered if I can take a moment of your time:

1) Does the city tax only apply to those inside Denver city limits.

2) Is Ft Collins/Loveland considered dog friendly communities? I have a 90lb husky who loves everything, and don't want to move to a place that likes their pets indoors confined to a bowl.

3) Are there any good schools that I should checkout for my kid? 2nd Grader.

4) Is it true you can buy lift tickets, year round, at the grocery store? If so, which one??

Thanks in advance.

Each city has their own tax rate, which applies to goods sold within their city limits.

2) Is Ft Collins/Loveland considered dog friendly communities? I have a 90lb husky who loves everything, and don't want to move to a place that likes their pets indoors confined to a bowl.

I think they are pretty dog freindly. we take ours everywhere including some stores (on leash)

3) Are there any good schools that I should checkout for my kid? 2nd Grader.

Yes, King Soopers, and possibly Safeway

Thanks in advance.

If you are referring to Denver's "occupational head tax", then yes, every job in Denver is subject to this even if you don't live in Denver. Pretty nominal, but it is a tax.

The area is "dog friendly", but only to the extent that your dog isn't a nuisance to others. There are leash laws and noise laws and such. A lot of how your dog is received will be it's temperment and behavior. As I have a neighbor with a husky that must be chained up or leashed when outside because it will "run" livestock and horses, I don't know how well your dog is socialized. If it is way too aggressive around other animals, it won't be well received. OTOH, if it's mellow and friendly and non-threatening (as perceived by others, not by you) ... it may do just fine. In my experience, huskies are pretty high strung dogs which need a job, and rarely get one as a pet.

The area schools are pretty much first rate.

Lift tickets at all the major grocery stores customer service desks; Albertson's, Safeway, King Soopers.
Also available at many sporting good stores, Sports Authority, etc. You will find discount deals or promo's at these locations compared to full price tickets for many of the ski areas, as well as seasonal promotions for ski packages marketed throughout the front range area. Of course, if you're really dedicated to a lot of skiing days, a season pass is the way to go at your favorite ski area ... typically available just before the ski season and into the first few weeks of the season each year.
