Warm and sunny mountainsides with open vistas near the snow line are the habitat of the marmot, well known to all alpinists. Their diet consists of roots, herbs and grasses. In August they bite off grass, dry it and bring it into living areas created at the end of a burrow, lined with dried hay, grass and plant stems as winter forage.
Depending on the altitude in which the burrow is built, the hibernation lasts 6 months or even longer.
