Came across this marmot while hiking near Lake Louise, Alberta. I think it is a Hoary Marmot.

It is a rodent (rabbits and rats...) and hibernates (five/six monthsfor the alpine type) underground. The wild once are quite shy, but in national parks, they get very close to people! I guess the American cousin is very similar...
