I would keep an eye on that. The Scree pants that I got to review for UKC (http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=1992 ) got lent to a mate when he came over for a week of ski touring and ice climbing in Lyngen. Pulling them down over the top of his ski touring boots worked well at first http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=149106 (in that photo Ed has some simple ski gaiters over them, but through the week the cuff or tongue of his boot wore through the material causing a large tear to form about halfway around the trouser leg at ankle height. Over ice climbing or hiking boots this won't be a problem but we decided the Scree pant wasn't cut to go over ski boots. On the same trip I used some Westcomb softshell troos, that at first I had felt were too baggy around the ankle (http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=2538 ) but when I wore them over my ski boots, the cut made sense - and they worked perfectly for that.
Certainly the older pair I have aren't really cut for ski boots. However, I think I've probably had them 4 years, worn them for a whole heap of stuff, and they're only now beginning to show significant signs of wear. So not bad going....
I guess I can look forward to skiing again as its after the longest day!
