road updates

When traveling to the Big Bear Area, there are 3 routes to choose from:

1. State Hwy 330/Hwy 18 through Running Springs is the fastest and easiest route, however, it can get congested on weekends and busy holidays.

2. Hwy 38 through Redlands is a bit longer, but is the most scenic and often has less traffic than HWY 330/Hwy 18.

3. Finally there is Hwy 18 through Lucerne Valley, which gets less snowfall during storms and has the least amount of mountain driving.

It is a good idea to choose your route depending on weather conditions and day of the week. Remember to always carry chains in your vehicle when traveling in the mountains.
