Can you provide me with a little more information and a question? Thanks.
Sorry, I should have clarified.
The pain is on the right side of your leg, back, or abdomen? Have you had any trauma to the leg? Any new workouts?
It is likely that you strained your quad muscle while skiing. The pain from a muscle strain is usually worst 48-72 hours after the injury, which works out pretty well for your skiing being the cause. A quad strain can be quite uncomfortable, and best treatment for you is Ice, motrin and rest. It should get better over the next 3-4 days.
Believe it or not, even without falling you can incur a significant muscle strain. I'm confident this is your diagnosis. If the pain persists or gets worse, you should see your doctor for a non-contrast MRI of your quadriceps.
