Note: According to Ski Denton’s operators, the ski area will not be open for the 2014-2015 ski season due to financial hardship.

Ski Denton receives a lot of natural snow each winter - usually over 100 inches annually - which helps draw skiers to its remote location in northcentral PA. Commercial skiing at Ski Denton dates back to the 1950’s. The area was first operated by Pennsylvania’s park service. Today, Ski Denton is still part of Denton Hill State Park but is operated by a concessionaire.

You will rarely find crowds at Ski Denton, but you will find a good variety of terrain. Most trails are geared towards beginners and intermediates, but the Avalanche trail, with a 66-degree pitch, is the steepest trail in the area. A gladed trail leading into the Avalanche (and sharing its pitch), The Extreme, is rated a triple black diamond. Less adventuresome skiers and boarders will find plenty of trails within their ability level, including two green trails that wind down the mountain for more than a mile.
