Fereydunshahr Ski Resort - The safe ski guide
The rate of skiing fatalities is relatively low
Every skiing fatality is a grim event. But despite terrible sequences of accidents like that of December 26-29, the overall rate of fatal ski accidents is not high. Statistics from America’s National Ski Areas Association for 2011-12 showed that the fatality rate was 1.06 per million skier days. By way of comparison, the fatality rate for Australian scuba divers, according to a study published in 2010 is 7 per million dives – seven times higher.
