Keep in mind there is usually a week or so before the full moon that can be counted on for good moonlight skiing with the moon rise earlier in the evening.  After a full moon has passed with a later moon rise and set, some of the most interesting moonlight skiing is around 4 or 5am. Skiing in moonlight then skiing into a sunrise is a great experience.
