Ski Denton Open May 23-24

Coudersport, PA -- Beginning Memorial Weekend, Ski Denton will open select weekends for lift-accessed mountain biking and scenic lift rides. Ski Denton has an established trail system for mountain bike enthusiasts, downhill and cross-country alike.

Scenic lift rides are offered anytime during the posted operating schedule and provide the rider with beautiful panoramic views of God’s Country.

“Race the Wilds” is the theme this summer at Ski Denton as the calendar of events includes a cross-country bike race and a 5K running race.

Ski Denton, located along the Route 6 corridor, will be open May 23-24 from 9:00-4:00. The third annual “Ride the Wilds” mountain bike race will start at 8:00am May 24. Racers will choose between the 10 mile novice course or the 20 mile advanced course, both of which will remain within the bounds of Denton Hill State Park. In addition, Country Ski & Sport of Wellsboro will be on-site offering bike demos and various bike accessories.

New this summer at Ski Denton will be “Run the Wilds” 5K running race that will be held Sunday, July 5 at 8:00AM. The race will take place within the bounds of Denton Hill State Park on varied terrain including dirt trails, access roads, and ski slopes. Operating hours July 4-5 will be 9:00-6:00. The extended hours are to accommodate those visiting the Pennsylvania Lumberman’s Museum for the Bark Peelers’ Convention, scheduled for the same weekend, who would like to stop by for a scenic lift ride. Discounted tickets will be offered to those who present proof of attendance at time of lift ride purchase.

The summer season rounds out with two weekends in autumn, October 3-4 and 10-11. There’s no better way to embrace the flaming fall foliage at its peak than from the chair lift. Scenic lift riders may disembark at the top of the mountain or remain seated to continue the ride to the bottom.

Ski Denton offers a wide range of trails to accommodate mountain bikers, from easy to difficult. Eight hour lift tickets are $25 for an adult and $17.50 for children ages 6-11. Scenic lift riders may come anytime during the posted operating schedule and the cost is $5 for an adult and $3 for children under the age of 12. For more information, please visit
