I'm not sure here... personally, I think that the traditional skis many of us grew up with require a different skill set. Yes, most that learned on these can make "modern" shapes work in "a few runs, to a few days" on snow. What I'm not as certain about is younger or newer skiers that try to ski the older skis.
Someone here on EPIC had their daughter out on some old school skis. I don't remember who or what the outcome was! Hopefully she figured it out and had fun
