I  am so overwhelmed.  I mean- infant, recline, adapaters, jogging, winter, etc- I know I need a good infant one and I also think I need a winter one for our cabin.  I think I am settled on the a snap-n-go initially since I can't stand to think about it much longer- but what about snow?  

 

We are to be spending about a month annually up in a major snow area- I am worried I will feel isolated and cabin=fever - do I need a special stroller for that?  

 

I just found out that they are giving away a Snow Stroller at http://sanki.ca/sanki/.  Any feedback? I can always try to win one but I need something SOON so was hoping for some feedback. TIA!

Honestly, I used an umbrella stroller for both. 
Until they were able to sit in the umbrella stroller (all have different age requirements), we just carried them in an infant carrier or in our arms or sling. 
Jeep has great all weather strollers. Sure, it may be a bit hard getting through snow with it, but I'd rather a light weight stroller than a heavy one. 
If you're against an umbrella stroller, I'd say the snap-n-go is also a good option. My friend has one that can hold up to two infant carriers (she only uses one though) and she loves it. They travel a lot and she says it is great!
 
Good luck and HTH!

I live in a snow area and honestly I'm not much of a snow person so we aren't outside in the snow & if I am it was inside. So a normal unbrella or light weight one worked well for us.

My decision was always (partially) based on how much room I had in the car ... some "travel systems" can be monsterous and I found them a waste of money as well considering how many places offer shopping carts or stroller rentals that your infant carseat can snap right onto.  When my kids were toddlers I prefered Jeep's lightweight stroller ... nice big wheels, higher handles, and lots of cargo room.
