Hello all,


I am a beginner telemarker, hoping to buy a pair of skis so that I don't need to continue paying for rentals while I learn.  I tried a pair of Rossignol Yama's once and enjoyed them, and I found them at Telemarkdown for just $225, but before buying them I was hoping to ask for advice here.  


While these skis might work well for me as a beginner, can I expect to quickly grow out of their high flexibility and deep sidecut as I advance in skill?  I generally ski in lift-served areas on groomed, icy trails, and I've heard that a stiff ski is what I need to handle that.  I'm a little worried that I might invest in these skis and then quickly "outgrow" them.


Could I ask for your advice?  Thanks a lot for the input!
