I'm looking for a case that I can use even during the bad days on the slopes (waterproof?). My only "condition" is that I want it to be low profile. Google search showed me a few cases that made the phone super bulky. I just don't want that because I'd like to use the case everyday in the pocket of my pants. Ideally it would be a second skin. What do you use? Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Cheers
As everyone else said, Lifeproof is the way to go as far as low profile + waterproof cases go.

One word of warning: Try to buy it from the official store.

There are a crapton of knockoffs and fake chinese versions that can be found on Amazon, Ebay and even a lot of retail stores who don't realize they're stocking the fake version.

The fake versions look almost identical to the real version, so it's a heck of a lot safer to just buy direct from Lifeproof or an authorized retailer listed on their website.
