Where's all the corduroy? Try Snowshoe, WV; the first time I saw this statement I could hardly believe they were crowing about it: I have trouble with that shit when it sets up real crispy; I have to pay attention that my turns/transitions don't parallel the tastiness when I'm unweighted 'cuz that delightful stuff will grab an edge and toss me on my ass, like crossing railroad tracks on a bicycle. I have been schooled a number of times regardless which skis I'm on at the time, wide or narrow, downhill or telemark. Faster seems to be better than slower on that crap. I am NOT a fan of corduroy. @legion, I've enjoyed my Rossignol Experience 88's (link) and got them from REI for a good price. I have a very long history with Rossi and they have always been good skis, IMHO.
