Found three pairs of ski from the garage, wondering ..

So I found these skis in the garage. I guess the previous owner forgot take them when they sold their house. Wondering if I can use them in ski resort like ski Dagmar or lakeridge ski. Or if I should sell them and get a proper pair from sport check.
I just start learning ski. Last week i went for my first ski lesson. At the end of the day I can ski on most of the hills except black diamond.

Those skis aren't that old, they are parabolic shape at least. Go ahead and try the pair that's a good length for you.

those don't look to be parabolic to me...and they are quite old.

Junk them OP
They don't look straight to me...sure they aren't trick skis but probably better than most rentals. If size is ok then OP should start with them, seasons almost over so why put brand new skis through the grind of mud/bare patches?
OP, if they don't fit put the 3 pair on Kijiji and you'll get some $ towards a pair of new skis....Scotties (Whitby) end of season sale started in Feb and has good prices.

Thanks for the reply guys. Here is another picture of the ski. I think these are the parabolic ski, correct me if I'm wrong. I'm still learning the terms.

They are not in terrible shape, but quiet dusty. All the bindings are functional. Now I just need to find a pair of boot for them.

those are at least 20 years old.

I have a pair of 1996 Rossi Viper's at the cottage that look newer than those

Rossi Vipers are classics! The first 'shaped' skis I ever tried back in the early 90s!

Ps. OP, As for the skis found in your garage, turn them into a shot skis!
