Sounds like they both got what was coming to them. If I the judge, I'd say...walk away boys. Game is even.
Actually, you may not be far off the mark. The skier was the instigator, even though the boarder ran after him, the skier soon got the upper hand, and could not claim self defence. witness stated, one of the bystanders turned the boarders face to the snow to protect it. That means the boarder was on his side or front. These are defensive, submissive positions, thus the skier can be charged. If the boarder was to press charges, and could prove any serious injury was sustained, after he was no longer a threat, the skier could face charges for A&B.
Most likly nothing will happen.
