Sugarloaf is one of the small communities surrounding Big Bear Lake in San Bernardino County. The interesting name of Sugarloaf comes from the early settlement days when sugar was sold in pieces of a loaf. This tiny community is located inside the national forest and is home to a general store, tavern, tennis courts, a small park and several bed and breakfasts and country inns. Although the town itself is small, Sugarloaf is only four miles to all the excitement of Big Bear Lake. Just a sample of the activities in the area includes swimming, fishing, windsurfing and water skiing. Large and small boat rentals are available, as well as boat rides around the lake. There is also golf, tennis and horseback riding, and miles and miles of trails for hiking and biking. Wintertime brings alpine and cross-country skiing, snowboarding and sledding. The village of Big Bear Lake is a short drive from Sugarloaf and has world class restaurants and shopping, as well as a petting zoo and a water slide park. Sugarloaf is an excellent place to base your Big Bear Lake vacation. You will be near all the excitement, yet off the beaten track away from the noise and crowds.

Sugarloaf Weather & Climate

The San Bernardino National Forest, near Big Bear Lake, is the only place in southern California that has four distinct seasons. At nearly 7,000 feet in elevation, the area enjoys warm, pleasant summers and crisp, cold winters. Its alpine tundra climate means plenty of snow in the wintertime for the ski slopes and occasional thunderstorms in spring and summer. The Big Bear Lake region also enjoys over 300 days of sunshine per year and is considered one of the sunniest places in the world. However, once the sun dips behind the mountains at night, it can be very cool - even in the middle of summer. The climate varies greatly from nearby Los Angeles. It can be 75 degrees in the city and 40 degrees in the mountains on the same day.
