Hey Siri! 6 Things To Ask Your Virtual Assistant Before Heading to Big Bear

Posted: 07/28/22

Here’s 6 top questions to ask your virtual assistant (or research online) before heading to Big Bear.

Which Route is Best?

Whether you’re a Waze-r or a Google goer, map out your route before you leave the driveway. We all have routes that we default to but check out all the freeway options to find the most time efficient route. Road maintenance and repairs along Big Bear’s 3 mountain roads are common throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Check ahead of time for any traffic delays or closures before you start up the hill.

What’s the Weather?

Just because it’s gloomy (or sunny) at home, doesn’t mean it’ll be that way in Big Bear. Check the current Big Bear weather before you head off and the future forecast for all the days you’ll be visiting. Also be aware that weather can change quickly in Big Bear. It’s not unheard of for a sunshiny day to get rainy and cold, then switch back to sunshine all within 30-40 mins. Pack for all the possibilities!

CHECK THE WEATHER or just use the weather widget on your phone.
