No, no these are the short skis. About 1 meter long. There are very good in the forest (for example from the Feistrizer Alm to the Ugovizza valley). If I have these skis in deep snow I must trudge! :-) This is my father and I have also that kind of skis. Now I am buying the equipment for real tour skiing (the long skis and other equipment).
Yes yes yes I recommend them to you! :-) Yes in the deep snow the tour skis (I cannot wait on my new one! :-)) and till June the short skis and they are great for quick descends! They are great when the snow is remaked somewhere in March and April and till June.
