if he has a racing background, and isn't all that into freestyle, butters and stuff, i'd recommend him a charging ski...
i myself ride the scottp4; a medium stiff 108mmm waisted ski
has regular camber, early tip rise+taper (no rocker) its very responsive, likes to go fast, goes through anything from deep pow to crud, to ice, basically a great ski if you want to shred the pow like you would shred down an icy groomer, awesome controll and responsiveness...
(however those 12m turns wont work, it has a rather large radius, but as long as you go fast on the groomers you'll be happy with your big radius, seeing how it handles everything great, you litterallly never have to hold back, you can just point those big tips down and enjoy the ride...)
