Default Need Solution to my snow-covered butt!

I'm hoping someone else has had to deal with this. I own a pair of Burton Ronin pants and absolutely love them, they fit perfect, have all the necessary pockets and such. Plus I feel like a rock star/samurai in them. The problem is that they have this annoying tendency to build up snow on my ass when I sit down to put my bindings on. It's tough to get off as it eventually turns to ice, and then it melts when I take a break inside. Maybe it's the material of the funky design on the butt that allowing the snow to stick to, I'm just not sure.

Such is my love/hate relationship with my pants. Any suggestions to help fix this other than spraying teflon on my a$$?

The simplest solution could be to strap in while standing? Not sitting? Then you will feel even more like a rock star!

I strap in standing all the time. I think its just something that happens to pants no matter what brand.

If you have washed them they probably need re-treated. Just did my Ronin's with Repel. Seems to be working out nicely.

Cosign lol..

I go through the same thing but I usually just pat the snow off. It doesn't really take much effort, strap up, get up, then pat your ass a few times before going.

I have a problem more with the melted snow making my ass wet.. but i think thats because the pants are only rated 5k.. but alas this is my first year and i didn't know if I'd like this.

Getting better shit next year thats for sure.
