The only one so far that is grammatically correct. Plus-que-parfait in the conditional clause requires conditionnel passé in the resulting clause, i.e. Hier, s'il avait fait beau, j'aurais skié. Yesterday, if it had been nice out, I would've skied.
Also correct in a highly literary style:

"Si j'eusse su, je ne fusse pas venu/venue"

"S'il eût fait beau hier, j'eusse skié".
