[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
If we refer to the distribution, this marmot should be a yellow-bellied marmot (Marmota flaviventris), but I'm not really sure, its fur seems a little too dark. The specialists are welcome to clarify.
It was a nice meeting on a trail of the Rocky Mountain National Park

Hello Philippe

And I did a search in google and found this page :

If we compare your photo to the ones in that page,
probably your photo is darker as you wrote.
