stroller advice from active parents?

any recs? I am new to living in the snow and this is hard for me to figure out- I have a 14mo old and really miss getting outside, walking aroud, hiking, etc- is there a stroller I can use in snowy conditions? I found on by googling www.snowstroller.ca and it looks different, but I don't know much about it (or living in the snow!)

There is some type of give away, so I guess I can always enter and try to win one :) but I would love to have some feedback!

thanks!!

    I would think that any real jogging stroller with good shocks and big, heavy-duty wheels would do OK in the snow, the bonus being that you could also use it the other seasons. I've not used one in the snow but I have used my B.O.B. stroller on pretty rough trails and it did just great.

    My brother and SIL used a hiking baby carrier until my nephew was about 3. They even used it in the house when he would get over-stimulated at get-togethers, etc. It could be an option for you.

    I have never seen a stroller like that! I think you would have to get a lot of snow every year to make that worth getting. I have a jeep jogging stroller and I love it. Mine even can be connected to my iPod and has speakers on it so we can have music..

    I had a Baby Jogger brand stroller with 20 inch wheels. It went through EVERYTHING, including snow, ice, and deep/soft sand on the beach. It got me through the young years of 4 children and made my life enjoyable. It was worth every penny.

    You can find used/refurbished Baby Joggers on eBay. The size of the wheel is important...smaller wheels won't go through the tough stuff.

    You can also check out Craigslist for jogging strollers. I've been thinking of getting one and just went on there today and found several for sale.
