The route will usually be climbed in 6 pitches, 70 m ropes are recommended. If the route is in fatter conditions, everything about the route will be easier, but when it's thin, good screws can be hard to find, anchors harder to build, and the hanging curtains will be much more difficult to climb and protect.
Exit Hwy 1 at Lake Louise, and drive west toward the lake, and park at the Moraine Lake road (closed in winter) turnoff. Ski the road to Moraine Lake, all but the last two miles of which is groomed. Then ski the hiking trail to Consolation Lakes and bivy. Get an early start in the morning, climbing the route and then skiing out will be a long day!
