True, there are some 1800 miles of well-marked and carefully groomed snow corridors in the Green Mountain State, maintained by the 15,000 plus members of VAST -- the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers. And these winter "super highways," which often parallel primary state roads, offer proximity to a variety of pitstops, restaurants, service stations and lodging ac- commodations. But the increasingly popular family activity has grown to a point where now guided tours and recommended routes are becoming commonplace. The Mountain Tamers Snowmobile Club in Central Vermont, for example, will be offering day trips for groups of eight to I0 people in February, along the club's 54-mile loop through Calais and Woodbury. The sojourns are designed for families or first-timers, and nclude plans for a trail "banquet," with club mem- bers handling all the details.
