There aren't really a lot of similarities. I love doing both and they are completely different entities. Snow skiing you have boots that click into long slender skis on each foot and most people use poles to propel themselves forward. It it obviously done on snow. Jet skiing is a water sport and it is done on a engine propelled thing, a jet ski. There is a throttle and a key to start it. Most people wear life jackets while on them. If you were talking about water skiing instead of jet skiing, then that is also a water sport and no boots or anything is required. You normally just slip your feet in. You will start off in the water and will hold onto a rope attached to a boat and then the boat will take off and you need to focus on making it out of the water and get on your feet. The only similarities there is you are using long slender skis.

Has anyone died from jet skiing?

Yes. In fact, astronaut Alan Poindexter was recently killed in a jet skiing accident. The most common types of serious jet ski accidents are a collision between two jet skis or a collision between a jet ski and a person in the water (often someone who just fell off another jet ski). Jet ski operators need to be aware of the most common types of accidents so they can avoid the conditions that make them possible. For example, a jet ski should never follow directly behind another jet ski. It's too easy to hit someone who falls off that jet ski or to ram that jet ski if it drops speed or spins suddenly.
