This puts too much weight on the inside ski..
Now Ill go really far out on a limb - cuz its next to impossible to tell for sure from this angle - but his hips and shoulders suggest that if we were looking this guy from the side, we would probably see too much tip lead. Im going to guess that if this photo is representative of his skiing, he probably also has problems with consistency in parallelism of his skis - Ill bet that sometimes there is a tiny bit of wedging and other times he has a bit of divergance between his skis.
1st recommendation - I bet the guy in the photo likes speed and relies on centrifugal force (banked turns). He should slow it waaaaaaay down and practice RR track turns on the bunny slope until he gets better control of the lateral position of his CM, tip lead, and matching edge angles.
