I have that problem with a lot of my pants (not just the snowboard ones). What I do is wear a belt and pull my pants up as far as they will go and then tighten the belt. I do this for when I'm at the lodge or walking from the car. I may look like a dork, but it preserves pant cuffs And it makes for easy adjustment when getting back onto the slopes.

Oh yeah, with some regular pants I wear, I do that too now after I seeing what kind of damage I do to the bottoms of the legs. Ah well...

A distant friend once told me he brought his pants to a tailor and had a tough Carhartt-like material sown into the cuffs. Anyone ever do this?

I guess that was three options....oh well...
Both my Burton pants and my Ride pants have leg lifts at the back of the leg which allow you to hinch up the bottom of your pants a little to avoid any cuff wear and tear. Works very well. I recommend both brands.

jello24 If they were still alive, I would recommend Special Blend and Foursquare. All my pants come from them. They may not be Gore-tex, but they've never gotten soaked for me to worry about them.

Unfortunately Burton killed off both lines of outerwear, so you, me and everyone will have to look elsewhere... Or if you can find them on sale, even better.

paul I got a pair of Foursquare pants in 2010 and still use them today, they are warm and durable. They also have a crapload of pockets and zipper vents for warm days. I'd recommend them any day, but it looks like this might be the last year they're around since Burton is shutting them down.

Mine do but I ping them up on my boots when I walk around, but I have had tree limbs, and sharp ice chunks scratch across mine and they've held up, better than that weird polyester thing Burton has

AssassinMonLV I use the 686 OG cargo. They're awesome. They keep me very warm in sub zero temperatures, and are quite durable.
