    Default Pram suitable for snow?

    It's random, I know.. Can anyone recommend a pram that has the following:

    * big wheels suitable for snow, and ones that won't rust! (My old baby jogger city mini from 2011 was completely ruined in the snow). Not sure if the newer models are better suited for snow

    * light weight

    * easy to fold

    Thanks in advance!

    My 2015 baby jogger has rusted pretty badly. (I've never taken it to the snow and in fact hardly use it).

    Can't help with the snow though sorry!

    Why do they make wheels that rust? How stupid can these designers be? Jeeez!

    I've got a bugaboo frog and they go well in the snow but don't make that model anymore. Buffalo can aswell. We got ours (frog) on gumtree second hand and its in perfect condition. Our first pusher bertini X2 has same or very similar wheels as the bugaboo it's about $750 I think without the bassinet.

    I've Msged my sister who lives in the states. She gets major snow in winter so will see what she says aswell

    Honestly just used a bob three wheel thing and the mcclaren

    This is what my sister said to me about pushers in the snow. She lives on the east coast of the US and where she is gets tonnes of snow in the winter

    The stokke trailz is, it's a Norwegian brand. We went with it here in Aus and my brother in law had it for his kids in Norway.

    I used a Jeep Liberty and it was awesome. They're discontinued but still pop up on gumtree. It did get a little spoke rust due to the salt, but if you already have a nice pram (that you don't want to ruin) try getting something like this cheap then you don't need to get upset about a little rust.
