Photo: Celebrating Marmot Day

Posted: Thursday, February 03, 2011

Mount Robert’s Tramway General Manager George Reifenstein, center, and building maintanance manager Robert Cozby roll out Monty the Marmot in front of the Tramway building Wednesday in honor of Marmot Day. Reifenstein pronounced that Monty did not see his shadow. Monty spends the summers at the upper tramway building being photographed with visitors. “There are tourists who ask if they are really this big, the standard response being if they were we would have bars on the windows,” Reifenstein said.
