Another possibility:
First of all, unless you are stuck with using framework 1.1, you should not be using an ArrayList at all. You should use a strongly typed generic List<DateTime> instead.

For custom sorting there is an overload of the Sort method that takes a comparer. By reversing the regular comparison you get a sort in descending order:

list.Sort(delegate(DateTime x, DateTime y){ return y.CompareTo(x); });
