Easywalker June or Bugaboo Buffalo?

I'm due in December, so plenty of time to choose and wait. I need my new pushchair to be good in snow (we live in Sweden, this year it started snowing in November and it thawed early April.) We'll be out in the snow at least twice a day for nusery run for my DD. I want a carrycot, so baby can stay in while she naps. I don't care about a travel system, and folded size is not an issue (we have a huge garage to store it in, and our car is a grand voyager) It will (hopefully) be used off-road quite a bit too, we have a lovely forest walk at the end of our street. Ideally I would be able to get a good footmuff, as we didn't go above zero for about 4 months last winter.

So far on paper I like the June and the Buffalo. Oh, and I'm not near any shops that stock a wide range of pushchairs to try out. Is there any other pushchair I should consider, what would you all suggest?

Both seem good.. but the new easywalker mini, not the june if you want to be able to tip it up kerbs and generally not give yourself wrist ache from pushing it!

I would probably add the tfk joggster twist with multi x carrycot/seat unit or the tfk x4 if you prefer 4 wheels.

I agree with Parties - change this to the Easywalker Mini or the Buffalo and thats a tough one.
The Easywalker carrycots have thickly lined aprons to keep a baby warm. The footmuffs are beautiful. However Bugaboo have the high performance footmuff.
Personally I would go for the Mini - simply because the neat size, easy access etc suits me better. But its a pushchair which you need to love I think....and I love it....
I think its easier to recommend the Buffalo as the 'safe' option. It will do everything you want and more. I think overall it will be easier to use etc.

Thank you both. Now I've just had a second look at the Bumberide Indy, having decided that if I get a carrycot I am not married to the idea of parent facing. If I got one, it would probably be a 2012 model. Any experience of the Indy?

Yes, I like the Indy too, although I personally prefer the other two pushchairs, and if you have the choice to parent face, then I would take it TBH. I am not a fussy mum, but my 3 year old (and my then 4 year old) both liked parent facing when they could.
