Any recommendations on time of year to climb and then ski Pico de Orizaba. I'm looking for optimum snow coverage/ski conditions.

Any other recommendations on where to stay, other things to see, what to watch out for, ect. would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not much of a skier but it seems that the "optimal" time to ski and the climbing don't really go hand in hand. I was there in early Jan 2013 to climb. Great climbing conditions with rock hard ice and snow. While you could have skied it I don't think it wold have been too....errr...pleasant. It would have been fast though.

Typical climbing season is Mid Nov. thru February'ish. Definetly, hands down, without a doubt drop these people an email.

They were wonderful people and will take care of you and your needs. Maribel will also shove so much food in front of you you'll never want to leave :)
