Keep in mind there is usually a week or so before the full moon that can be counted on for good moonlight skiing. Some of the most interesting moonlight skiing is after the full moon date has passed and the moon has the best light around 4 or 5am. Skiing in moonlight then skiing into a sunrise is a great experience.
