During the 2020-2021 season, 48 people were killed in skiing and snowboarding accidents, as reported by the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA). These fatalities represented an increase of six incidents over the previous 2019-2020 season, which was shortened by the global pandemic. Most of these fatal accidents resulted from collisions with objects. The majority of the people who died were males between the ages of 21 and 30 who were skiing on more difficult terrain. Only approximately 79% of the snowboarders and skiers who suffered fatal accidents were wearing helmets. This falls below the national average for helmet usage, which is 87%.
