Major Taylor 365 - Winter 17/18 Saturday, Dec 16th Snowboard/Ski at Afton Alps

Major Taylor 365 evolved from the Major Taylor Bicycling Club of MN, a registered Minnesota non-profit.  The MTBCMN was founded in 1999 as a bicycling club committed to increasing the participation of the African American community in bicycling for sport, recreation, transportation and health improvement. Over the years we realized that we were a community supporting active living as the strategy for addressing many of the key challenges to the health and well-being of the communities that we live and ride in.  In 2010 we launched Major Taylor 365 (MT365) and created year-round opportunities by adding Nordic Skiing, Downhill Skiing, and Snowboarding.  A unique aspect of our program and engagement is that it includes increasing access for adults, youth, and families. We have a focus on African American families and other communities of color. 

We have a special rate of only 25.00 for a lift ticket, lesson, and rental for an individual or 75.00 for a family of 3 or more. This is only available for members of the community organizations and community partners connected to Major Taylor 365. Although you register here, you will pay at the venue. These rates are only available on days that we are hosting at Afton Alps. We will create additional opportunities at other regional venues. 

Outings will be posted. Typically Saturdays at Afton Alps, 2:30 pm check-in will begin, lessons begin at 4:00 pm.  There will be additional special events and other locations in Minnesota. We recommend that beginners take 3 lessons consecutively (no more than 2 weeks between lessons) to create the most positive and developmental experience.  If you are an experienced skier or boarder, we need you too.

 When you register today, you will automatically receive notifications for all future dates.
