Aileron left - the fall line slopes to the left
Rudder right - the skis are pointing right of the fall line in a traverse across the hill.
The edge (rudder) are pointing the skier across the hill, but the fall line (rudder) is making the skier go to the left. Probably the previous tester used the skis on rails, or the nice people in the shop got tired of bad reviews by poor skiers and dulled the crap out of the edge. Or the ski has no torsional rigidity.
