Rollin you should play around with them first. Did you notice for example that on a flat trail that simply by edging one ski, - tipping, rolling on edge, you can turn? Like a real curve that happens amazingly quickly compared to a straight ski. So play with just edging one ski, standing on it and waiting. Use the other foot just to hold you up. Release that edge , fatten and tip the other skinon edge to go back the other way.
A drill like that should seem like magic. The same drill was done on straight skis but it took forever. After you've done the one foot "edge locked turns" you can try tipping both skis on edge. Going from tipped,edged, carving a turn, then slowly untipping and tipping the other way to go back the other way. How you move your body into the new turn as you tip them is a major key to skiing shaped skis. It will take some playing around to experience and get it. Goal is two clean tracks with no skidding. Done on gentle terrain. That's railroad tracks.
When you get that, that ahould juat feel fun - effortless turning. The effort is the actions and moving the right way. Also key in that is your not forcing your shin into the front of the boot to force the skis to turn. Your pretty centered, but again- moving into the new turn inside the arc.
That should feel dramatically different than a straight ski. Mostly in time scale. Could do the same thing on straights but would take forever to turn. So that's one side - pure edge turns through railroad tracks. We don't do that while regular skiing but there's many key elements invoved. ( plus, you actually kind of can but keeping this short).
If your skiing is anything line these guys on straight skis, should not have that hard avtime adjusting. There's no more extending up to release and you can cut out jamming the front of the ski. Short turns on an appeopriate shaped ski can be mostly carved instead of the csoet if check to rebound like in these straight ski short turns.
