Snow Report: Big Bear is definitely ready for snow season!!!



4 Ways open to Big Bear - Highway 18 from San Bernardino through Lake Arrowhead/Running  Springs ("Front Way") is the shortest route, but is congested at times and has lots of curves. Highway 38 from  Redlands ("Back Way") is the best route when leaving the Valley on weekends and  holidays. Highway 18 from Lucerne Valley ("Desert Way") is best in snowy weather. Hwy 330 from 210 FWY is now open again and is the most popular.             

Get detailed driving directions.

 

Hwy. 330: (Running Springs) 


 

 






 

 

Hwy. 18: near Lake Arrowhead/Running Spgs







Hwy 330  From the 210 FWY  go north on the 330 from the 210 Freeway for 15.7 miles to Running Springs. When you get to Running Springs, continue straight towards Big Bear Lake (the road name changes to the SR18, but it is the same road). Follow SR18 for about 12 miles towards Big Bear Lake until you get to the Dam. When you get to the Dam, go straight for 2.3 miles to Golden Bear Cottages. The office is on the right. NOTE: This is the most direct route from the Inland Empire, Orange Co., LA and San Diego. 



Hwy 18 from Waterman Ave through the Arctic Circle is open to passenger vehicles only.  We recommend using alternate routes Hwy 330, Hwy 38 and Hwy 18 the back way from the Desert. (check road conditions on our Home page before your drive)





Hwy. 38: from the 10 fwy Redlands Open, and clear. (check road conditions)

DIRECTIONS TO BIG BEAR LAKE

1) Hwy SR18  from the San Bernardino area. Begin at the Waterman exit from the 210 freeway (the approximate travel time from this point in good weather is one hour). Go north towards Lake Arrowhead, then continue on by following the signs to Big Bear Lake. When you get to the Dam, go straight ahead for 2.3 miles to Golden Bear Cottages. The office is on the right. NOTE: this road is considered too narrow and curvy for some inexperienced mountain drivers and for passengers prone to motion sickness.


2) Hwy SR38  from the Redlands area. Begin at the Hwy 38 exit from the 10 freeway in Redlands (the approximate travel time from this point in good weather is one and 1/2 hour). Go north on Orange Street about 1/2 mile to Lugonia. Turn right on Lugonia (which is SR38) and follow it through Mentone and up the mountain towards Big Bear. When you get to Big Bear, take a left on the main road and follow it along the lake. After about 10 miles you will see the Preforming Arts/Civic Center, our office is just 1/2 mile past it on the left.  NOTE: this road is a bit longer, but except for about 7 miles, it is far less curvy. A favorite of many drivers because it is a beautiful senic drive.


3) Hwy SR18  from the High Desert.  Begin at the Bear Valley Road Exit from the 15 freeway (the approximate travel time from this point in good weather is one and 1/4 hour). Beginning at Lucerne Valley, take Hwy 18 towards Big Bear. When you get to the top of the mountain, go right along the Lake towards Big Bear. When you get to Stanfield Cut-off, go over Big Bear Lake and turn right (West) towards the Dam. We are about 6 miles just past the Preforming Arts/Civic Center. The office is on the left side of the road. NOTE: This is the best road for guests traveling from Las Vegas (less than 3 hours for the total drive). This road only has about 6 miles of curvy road. The rest is an easy drive. It is a good alternative.

4) Hwy SR330  OPEN AGAIN... From the 210 FWY  go north on the 330 from the 210 Freeway for 15.7 miles to Running Springs. When you get to Running Springs, continue straight towards Big Bear Lake (the road name changes to the SR18, but it is the same road). Follow SR18 for about 12 miles towards Big Bear Lake until you get to the Dam. When you get to the Dam, go straight for 2.3 miles to Golden Bear Cottages. The office is on the right. NOTE: This is the most direct route from the Inland Empire, Orange Co., LA and San Diego. It is a very good road, but a bit curvy for some passengers prone to motion sickness.
