“Snowshoeing is a great chance to get outside, enjoy nature and get some exercise,” says Tina Tharp, a specialist in Community Engagement and Wellness at Mayo Clinic Health System. “It’s a great cardio workout, and helps build strength, agility, balance and endurance. Being outside in the fresh air with nature all around you brings mental health benefits, as well.”
A limited number of snowshoes will be available. Participants can bring their own.
