I've got some older blizzard race stock skis. I know they're WC race stock, as they only have the Blizzard name on them, and are signed (with a message to me) by Renate Gotschl! They were just as shapes were coming into skis (they are slaloms) and they are as stiff as hell.

Update: I got to ski these last night in our league race. I took one run on the Blizzards, and one on my Racetigers. The times were similar, but the Blizzards definitely felt more damp and smooth.
With hand flexing, the Blizzards seem fairly stiff, but they kind of ski "soft". They are very predictable and confidence inspiring in a course, but I felt like I was over turning them a bit. I was on 181's, but I'll probably go with 185's next season so they aren't quite as turny.

Overall, thumbs up! I'm making the switch.
