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.

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...
