Further to Liam's comments, (sorry if you already know all this) there are also skis that have what is called "dual radius" sidecut .  That is, the tip has sidecut like a slalom ski (short radius), but the tail has a GS shape (longer radius).  These types of skis are really great if you like to mix it up and vary your turn shape, and they really do work well.  Pressure the tips, and they come around in snappy little short turns; stay centered and cruise longer turns.  Very versatile and fun, and they don't force you into making a single type of turn over and over again.  Fischer, Kastle, Nordica and Elan are four brands that use this shape for some of their frontside skis.  The good news is, that they make them in varying stiffness and performance levels, so you will find something that suits.  If this sounds like your cup of tea, let us know and we can recommend a few to look at.  A number of the members here own such skis, as do I.   8)
