    Number of people visiting the slopes annually = 52.25 Million

    Number of people visiting the slopes annually = 52,250,000

    Number of deaths annually (per year) = 34

    Probability that a skier will die in a given year is calculated as = Number of deaths per year / Total number of visitors in a given year

    Probability that a skier will die in a given year = 34/52,250,000

    Probability that a skier will die in a given year = 0.00000065 (Rounded to eight decimals)
