Besides brand names I don't think there is a difference. Maybe there might be a difference to accommodate for the different boots but I don't think so.

the style of the cut seems different ... some pants just look like ski pants, you know, those deep black nut hugging straight legs ones

A lot of ski pants are cut a little slimmer as they, on average, have an older more conservative market to deal with. Materials will be technically similar. Some ski pants will be reinforced on the inside of the ankles as that is a location of high wear for skiers.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

I'd guess snowboard outfits are more baggy, than ski-gear?

snowboard pants have tick pats on the back and the knees, cause snowboarders sit on there knees and ass alot more then skies.
also, alot of the time theres alot more design put into snowboard pants, more baggy, more pockets or vents, stuff that make them look nice..

mind you, not all snowboard pants have that.
