I was skiing down a hill where ahead of me this skier was turning his head to instruct his friend. He (snip) wiped out unexpectedly.
I continued down the hill and before I got to the bottom this same person who had wiped out skied directly up to me. He was RIGHT behind me to my right. If he was exhaling I would have felt his breath.
If there isn't more to the story, IMHO, just ignore it. There is no benefit from you trying to speculate on the "meaning" of what happened. Some people are jerks. Just forget it.
