Filler was charged with misdemeanor child abuse. District Attorney Mark Hurlbert told the Vail Daily a conviction could result in up to two years in county jail.
The girl, a beginner skier from Mexico, required treatment at a local medical clinic for minor injuries. A police statement said Filler "jumped on top of the girl and hit her in the face with his fist."
Lt. Mike McWilliam with the Eagle County Sheriff's Office said the girl's ski instructor stopped Filler from continuing to strike the teen.
"The ski instructor told him,'Hey, you are beating up a kid,' " McWilliam said. "Then he realized his son wasn't hurt."
