Snowboarding pants with zip up bottoms?

I'm looking for some snowboarding pants which the bottom half can unzip up to your knee. I have a bad knee and wear braces which are hard to put on without taking off your pants. It'll be a lot easier for me if I can just unzip the bottom half of my pants to put them on. Does anyone know any brands that sell these type of snowboarding pants?

Spyder is the only one I can think of off hand.

Spyder. Though those aren't a "snowboarding" brand. Just wear a first layer, drop your pants, and put it on. Or put it on ahead of time.

I have Oakley pants, don't know which model and they have zippers on the outside of both legs from the bottom all the way up to the waist.

I have North Face pants with full length zips. Not snowboard specific but black snow pants are black snow pants, right? And you can get them under 100$ on sale at most sports store.

I too wear a knee brace and full zip is quite practical for on-site adjustment. I just can't see myself pull down my pants on top of the mountain...
