Steamboat Springs, CO, March 05, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Dig This, the nation’s first-and-only recreational heavy equipment dirt-moving compound, has added First Tracks, a new two-hour session, to it’s existing line of programs. Designed for clients with limited schedules, First Tracks provides enough time to command the controls of either a Caterpillar 315 CL hydraulic excavator or D5G track type dozer with confidence.
“First Tracks is a condensed version of our already popular full and half-day sessions,” said Ed Mumm, Dig This owner and founder. “With First Tracks, clients get a feel for the equipment, experience the rush and excitement, and still have plenty of time to enjoy the all that Steamboat has to offer. It’s even a great escape from the regular work day.”
First Tracks is offered 9:00 am and 1:00 pm daily, based on availability, and accommodates up to five participants. Instructors work with two clients or less. First Tracks includes shuttle service (within the surrounding Steamboat Springs area) to and from Dig This, equipment orientation, safety instruction and approximately one hour of either excavator or bulldozer operating time. Cost is $200.00 per person.
Dig This’ inspiration came to New Zealander Ed Mumm, while he was operating heavy equipment to construct his home in Steamboat Springs, CO. After having fun clearing trees and scrub oak, constructing a road, building a pond, and digging foundations he realized the potential for a business opportunity and the concept for Dig This was formed. The adventure-based facility, located in Steamboat Springs, CO, has operated year-round since December 2007 with full-size excavators, bulldozers and skid loaders.
