Denton Hill State Park is a Pennsylvania state park in Ulysses Townshipmarker, Potter Countymarker, Pennsylvaniamarker, in the United States. The park is a downhill skiing resort. Denton Hill State Park is on U.S. Route 6 between Coudersportmarker and Galetonmarker. In 2000 the park became part of the Hills Creek State Parkmarker complex, an administrative grouping of eight state parks in Pottermarker and Tioga counties.

Skiing

Denton Hill State Park was the first ski operation run by the Pennsylvania Department of Forests and Waters (a predecessor to the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources). The park was established in 1951, opened in 1959, and the lodge and ski are were built between 1958 and 1967. The ski area was operated by the state until 1979, when it became a concession run by a private contractor ("Ski Denton" as of 2007).

The skiing ranges from easy, beginner slopes to some of the most dangerous, expert, black diamond slopes on the east coast of the United States. There are four ski lifts at the park, each of which stops at a different elevation on the slopes. Lift-accessed Snow tubing is also available at Denton Hill State Park, or Ski Denton.

There are five chalets on the grounds of Ski Denton. Each cabin has wall to wall carpeting and two bedrooms that sleep up to six individuals. There is a large living room with a cathedral ceiling in each cabin. The cabins also have a full kitchen, dining room, and bathroom. A hostel style bunkhouse sits atop the main lodge.
