Hi Vermonter, welcome to MySwissAlps!
I'm not an expert on this, but May/June is not the best time for skiing. Winter season is from mid December to mid April, depending on the weather and season. I doubt if there will be any options at all. There will be snow in higher terrain, but there won't be prepared pistes or ski lifts. Off piste skiing would indeed be the only option, but I can't think of places where it's reasonably safe to do so. You'd best ask Wengen Tourism for tips. If there are options, they will know for sure.
The trains and some cableways will operate and can get you as high as Jungfraujoch at 3400 m. There is snow all year round, but skiing without a guide on the glacier is very dangerous. There are guided tours though, but I'm not sure if there are ski tours as well. The Wengen tourist office will be able to get you more details.
I hope this gets you started!
