I have a City Mini and it's definitely not a good stroller for off roading.....especially in Canada.......I'm not sure where you are but I live in snowy Alberta and it doesn't get the job done over the snow and on rougher trails.....not even close. In fact, it's called the City Mini because it's meant to just go on pavement and such. Of course it can be done, but it's not a best case scenario. It is an amazing stroller, I love it so much but for off roading and snow......I have another stroller. My favorite thing about the City Mini is how lightweight and easy it is to fold up......and the sunshade, it's great. I've had a number of strollers in my day and this one is great. In your case I think I'd go with a more heavy duty stroller so you can get around where you want to go.
