Dolomite Circuit

The forecast for the weekend is looking good at this point and conditions are also good (both subject to change without notice).

My plan at this point is to head out Saturday morning and ski the Dolomite Circuit. I then plan to spend the night camping in Lake Louise and ski Fairview Mtn on Sunday (see next post). You have options. You can day trip either Dolomite, Fairview or both, Or you can camp out Saturday night as well. If you are planning to stay overnight in Lake Louise let me know.

The Dolomite Circuit is one of the classic ski tours and when conditions are good the skiing is great and on a clear day the views are spectacular! 

I would like to be on the trail by 8:30 or 9 at the latest.

    Sorry guys, I have to pull out, it is my Moms 90th this weekend, all my brothers and sisters are coming so I should be there to celebrate this pretty cool event. Hopefully I have inherited her amazing longevity. Be careful please, currently snowing heavy up the Parkway, may cause some instabilities...

    I can only ski on Saturday so I'll be driving. If anyone else is only doing Saturday, let me know and we can car pool. I'm thinking of a stop off for a hot tub at Elevation in Canmore if we are not running too late.

      I think the plan is to meet at shouldice arena parking lot (home road) and carpool from there?

    No campgrounds for tenting open in Lake Louise due to bear activity...

    Just a reminder to everyone. Please pay your 2014 Membership Fee before Saturday. Also, there are some that have not been assessed for A1, we will take a few minutes at the beginning of the day to run people through it.

    Hi Tom I'm new to Meetups. I did the Dolomite Circuit last year. Really nice trip. I have my AST1. If I can arrange it at home do you mind if I come? Geoff
    (PS, Alex, I agree with Tom about the trees and skiing, I wonder if the rating is due to the terrain not the skiing?)

    April 15, 2014

  • Tom

    Alex. Ive done this a couple of times with little difficulty and Im a crappy skier. There is some trees on the way to the Mosquito Creek trail but they are manageable

    April 15, 2014

  • Alex R

    How much technical ability does this require? I checked out the soistheman webpage and he rates it as expert, but from the photos it looks pretty mellow. I'm an intermediate skier and hate tree skiing.

    It looks like Lake Louise Trailer Campground is open year round, I will call Lake Louise Parks Info for more info, Stay tuned.
