Tennessee has a "Ski Area Safety and Liability Act" codified at TCA Section 68-114-101 et seq.  Public Chapter 85 changes the definition of skier to include "any person present in a ski area for the purpose of engaging in the sport of skiing, Nordic, freestyle, or other types of ski jumping, and who is using skis, or a sled, tube, or snowboard."  It also increases the minimum insurance limits for each "ski area operator responsible for a passenger tramway" to $1,000,000.
