#1-- One day at Mt. Hood, and one day at Timberline? Good idea? Bad idea?
#2-- Which Mountain will be better for her first day "getting use to it"?
#3-- We'll want to go to some cool craft beer bars at night, so we'll want to get a hotel near those bars. Is there a certain area where we should stay? We'd rather stay closer to the bars, and drive a little more to get to the mountain.
#4-- Do these two mountains typically offer spring skiing discounts or other reasons to not pay full price online?
Budget-- Inexpensive lodging. We're just sleeping there...
Likes-- Craft beer, young nightlife (late 20's)
