I hadn't tried any snowsports until this season. That being said, these are the pants I've used for both skiing and boarding. I have no complaints whatsoever, and they're holding up quite well. A couple of small slices in them (that were easily fixed with a Gorepatch) is the only damage they've sustained, which is very minimal when you take into account the amount of time I've spent sailing down the slopes on my backside :P
I would buy another pair of these without hesitation.
