stop sitting down when you buckle in. Plus you'll save your pants as sitting down all the time wears out the waterproofing in the arse area.

Exactly, stop sitting down when you buckle in.
That is the key.

When you get off the chair, find the place where you want to strap in.

Take your front foot, the one strapped in, & push the snow in front of you to create a litter ledge.

This will keep you from sliding when you do your bindings up, You will never sit down to do your bindings up ever again. Unless you choose too.

this is what I do, and it works like a BREEZE. (actually I use my one buckled foot to drag snow BACK and then make a ledge - same thing)

brilliant

Had a pair of Burton Vent pants for a few seasons. No problems with getting a wet ass in them, and that what when I was learning too, so was ass to ground alot.

They were also one of the most comfortable pants that I have ever worn as well, and the hand pocket lining was.....fabulous to put your hands in...i wish all my pockets were lined with that stuff.

I believe the AK Hover has a Pro Shell?

I had the Vent pants last season as well with the same issues. Though with that, I did wash without realizing that I shouldn't. I also tried reapplying the water repellent but didn't really make a difference

Not everybody can buy $400 pants

I have Burton Pants, I think they are the white collection pant from 2011. My butt is always dry and snow never seems to stick. I usually just get like $100-$150 pair of pants and just get a new color ever year.

i have some burton dryride cargo pants i got for TJ Maxx... lol
I accidently washed them after the first time i took them out but they are still waterproof. only thing is they are shell pants so they run a bit colder than i expected. but i just need to layer more underneath.
