I'd suggest giving the Oakley Sethmo pants a try. They're not your typical Oakley fit, and are actually quite trim - kind of like a relaxed alpine fit - I actually prefer my pants a bit baggier at the resort. The material is more alpine material, comparable to Arc'Teryx - i.e. not super burly resort style that you'll find in North Face gear. Strong enough, but not overbuilt. It's a good backcountry-style hardshell pant. They have really sweet dual venting - the inner thigh is mesh lined for leaving open while skiing, and the outer thigh is NOT mesh lined for good ventilation while hiking/skinning. When they're both open, you get really good cross-flow ventilation. They also have jacket-snap system - the belt loops are slightly folded over, and fold up to reveal snaps that snap into jacket powder skirts. I'm a medium/32 in normal work pants, and the medium has just enough room to tuck a thin midlayer in (i.e. R1). The bib section is softshell-like and isn't too restrictive or loose for an athleticish body that consumes beer after each activity. The bib section also has a well-designed overlap system that makes it way more difficult for snow to get in compared to 3 other zipoff bib pants I tried. This pant's design clearly shows it was VERY well thought out and designed in close communciation with a professional skier with a lot of experience (Seth). If every pant could be designed like this one, there'd be no need for this thread, and I'd be in heaven.
Unfortunately, the color isn't quite right and I prefer a totally overbuilt burly material (i.e. Flylow, North Face, most Snowboard outerwear). I really wanted to keep them, but I rip clothing open in the trees on a regular basis and know they wouldn't last with the way I ski.
Order them up from Oakley Vault (aquamarineish) or Evo (black) and try em out. If they don't work, send 'em back. Oakley Vault will pay for the return shipping, so if they don't work, it'll only cost you a bit of time - Evo charges $10 for a return shipping label.
I saw people complaining about durability issues on the sethmo line, maybe oakley fixed the problem with the gear this year! There was a guy pretty upset on his review ate backcountry
