Mountain Hardware, Patagonia,arcteryx. Stay away from Burton AK . although they say its there best..itstill resort clothing.
Buy a shell pant with full length zippers. Get something lite and waterproof/water resistant and layer for warmth.
Above all for me is full length zippers

The Best pants are the one's that fit and have the features that suit your needs. Almost every quality outdoor and snowsport clothing company is making Goretex pants. Some pants are taylored more towards alpine climbing, where as others are taylored more towards downhill or backcountry snowsports. Both types of pants will generally work fine, but some of the more climbing specfic pants are tough to fit over snowboard boots. Most of the climbing pants have full side zips, where as most snowsport pants generally have thigh vents only. Make sure to get pants with built-in gators.

Don't forget you need to figure out which type of Goretex you get. Gore makes SoftShell, ProShell, Performance and Paclite. The SoftShell fabric is designed for snowsports. The ProShell is more for mountaineering. Performance is more of a price-point product and Paclite is designed for ultralite constructed garments. These variances in the Gore will effect both the price and the performance, so it important to know the differences.

P.S. Since you were specifically looking for NEW pants... the Mammut Alaska pants that I'm selling are brand new with the hangtags still attached. They are made with Goretex SoftShell fabric. Asking $150 (reg $325).
