Cam or bee in snow?

hiya I've got a 6month old and a cameleon bugaboo which is great but I've been considering the bee plus as it's a bit smaller but still 2 way facing

Any comments on how the bee plus is compared to the cam with a baby this age and also how did yours cope in the snow? Should I wait until next year when winters over or sell my cam and get a bee now?

Thanks x

I bought a Bee when I knew I'd never walk through snow with a buggy. Used to have a Jane for DD1, it was practically 4wd (air filled tires with a huge tread) through the snow in Scotland, when we moved to Asia I got the Bee (first model) for DD2 as it was great on smooth pavements and nipping round shopping malls...

Don't get a Bee for snow....

I am not even sure I would choose the standard Chameleon specifically for snow - you would definitely need the snow wheels for more than a light sprinkling of snow.

i have a micralite with all terrain wheels, that would go through snow easy, but both are discontinued so would have to be ebay.

I had snow wheels for my Frog and Cameleon and they worked brilliantly...In fact i think the pushchairs look better with them on...As much as i loved both, i still think it's rather a wierd looking thing with such tiny wheels at the front.
