Can someone with minimal knowledge of downhill ski technology purchase appropriate skis at a ski swap/used ski sale?

I want to start skiing for real again this year. I've skied only sporadically since my practically new, very nice skis were destroyed in a tragic accident involving a gallon of mineral spirits about 10 years ago. I was looking at buying skis (not boots!) at one of those ski equipment swaps/tag sales. Problem is, aside from knowing I want shaped skis and the approximate length, I really know nothing about ski tech. Is it still worth trying to purchase something? or should I rent for this season and from the end-of-season sales with the sales guy there to help me?
