The marmots are awake

Our marmots are probably the sweetest villagers in Saas-Fee. Explore the area of Spielboden or the Stafelwald and you will probably come across marmots. They like to be fed with peanuts and carrots all summer long.

In winter the cute little fellows sleep peacefully in their caves. The hibernation lasts between 6 and 8 months. From mid-April the marmots are seen again and are looking forward to your visit! 

Meet the marmots

  • Marmots are gourmets, they like peanuts and carrots.
  • Watch where you step!
  • Keep your voice down!
  • Pet the marmots cautiously!
  • Take your waste with you.
  • Do not throw anything into the marmots' caves and do not put your head inside!
  • Do not use a flash when taking pictures.

Our marmots are gourmets! 

To have a good time with these little animals, we have prepared these bags of peanuts for our marmots. They can be bought at the Saas-Fee Tourist Office and in the Spielboden restaurant. The little bag is also a great souvenir and can be reused.
