Wait for some more precip, warm days then cooling a period. I hiked around the entire mountain last weekend and the upper sections are void of snow/ice cover. On Coop a snow patch goes from 8700' to about 10,000', the rest is bare. You'd be on loose shit for a long way.

Most routes on Hood are excellent in the Winter. It's all about timing and patience. For Winter access to Cooper Spur and the north face routes park at the Cooper Ski area and hike in. In good conditions (both mountain and climber) some routes can be done in a day. Camping on the lower Spur or the Elliot are great in the Winter as well.
