This set is a great value in skis. Don't worry that the shipping is a bit pricey, remember you can hardly even find this type of ski, and it would cost you hundreds of dollars or more. While they can be used to do telemark turns, they are so much more than that. Properly, these should be described as backcountry touring skis or randonnee skis. The bindings can be used with ski boots or with lug sole hiking type boots. The Swiss Army uses these with a double shelled mountaineering boot they call the "Schalenschuh". These skis are fully functional and can do regular downhill turns, telemark with the heels released, cross country and uphill with the skins applied., The skins that come with these are custom for these skis, they are synthetic not "seal". The whole set up is very heavy duty and well made. They are perfect for use in the backcountry. I suggest you start with these by taking them to a downhill place and practice their different functional modes on the bunny slope. The releases do work, get them adjusted by starting out less tight. I liked these so much, that I bought 3 pairs in order to get a really nice pristine condition pair, and now I have some spare parts. I added a set of backcountry/ freestyle boots that cost nearly $600. I finally found some gaiters that fit over these boots. The edges were ok as they came, but I plan to have them tuned up anyway. Spare poles and other parts can be bought from Swiss suppliers. These are the real deal, I have official books from the Swiss Army that show these exact skis in use.

I have had fun with these. I use them with a pair of Lowa Civetta mountaineering boots. I took them to a cross-country area and was able to keep up with my brother on classic xc skis. I also wasn't stuck in the tracks like he was. On the downhill sections, I had a huge advantage and in turning ability which made it a lot more fun. We are both relative beginners, but the expert xc trails were easy on these. It was quite a bit more work to get up the hills with these, because they are very heavy. They have no wax pocket, so I waxed the whole length lightly with grip wax. The skins are so grippy that you can't even glide down moderate slopes, so I haven't been using them.
I also took them to a downhill area and used them with locked heels. I am beginner/intermediate level and I was able to ski intermediate slopes, although the feel is a lot less secure than downhill skis/boots.
The condition of the skis is not perfect, and the material on the base is starting to separate slightly from the rest of the ski on one of them. They also lose little plastic chips from the top, but that is only cosmetic.
I'm very happy with my purchase.

Great enjoyment. I love these skis. You can adjust for different size boots by unscrewing the elbow on the heel cable, then fine adjust with the turnbuckle next to the elbow. Don't screw the elbow all the way into one of the holes on the binding if it makes the cable too narrow around the heel of your chosen mountaineering boot. You can find original surplus Swiss Mountain boots sometimes online that go with these skis. Pull the toe binding forward when you are free of the ski to change from downhill to cross country. No adhesive needed for the seal skins. They bracket on.
