My wife and I will be in Oregon for about a week for vacation in mid August and I have heard of summer skiing being possible on Mt. Hood. I was thinking about surprising my wife with a trip on the slopes but after searching on the internet I could not tell if it's really possible, at least for beginners (since, assumingly, only the more difficult runs would be open). She has skied before, but I have never been. Does anyone have any info on this that might help me out? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Call the ski mountain on Mt Hood and ask them if they are still skiing. Spring corn snow conditions can be fun for beginners as opposed to deep winter powder, even when the powder is packed and groomed. Hard icy snow isn't easy to learn on either.

If you have never been, you should not do summer skiing.

I called the Timberline Lodge and asked and they said it's pretty much only for advanced skiiers during the summer. I'm guessing this is because only the steepest parts of the mountain would have snow?

Yes. The lower elevation runs which are easier have no snow. It's black diamond territory in the summer. It's also icier.
