Directions to Snow Summit

There are 4 ways to get to Snow Summit. The most Popular 330 from the south west. Second most popular would be the 38 from the South east. After that there are 2 other ways to make it to the top of Big Bear. Highway 18 from the west or from the east. These are mountain roads and sometimes there is work going on. I would always recommend checking Caltrans for current road conditions. Click here to go the Caltrans website.
