I always ski with booty shorts on under my ski pants to stop my butt from being cold, could work

I’d drop a hint for some women’s Sugoi Midzero Buntoaster shorts. Tights need to be more waterproof on the back than regular winter tights, which tend to be breathable at the back, i.e. cold. We have some MEC cycling tights that are good, and I sometimes add light long johns. On top, you might add an extra layer or a waterproof-breathable shell if it’s cold.

I’m going to look at some merino boyshorts, in addition to some more waterproof overpants, thanks guys!
Bash - any waterproof pants you’d suggest, that don’t cost an arm and a leg?

Here are the women's Sugoi Buntoaster shorts - although I think you'd wear a small, so you'd need to find a different vendor. They are not just a thermal layer; they are also windproof at the back, which is key for many women. Men's thermal shorts are windproof at the front for some reason.

We have MEC Adanac cycling tights for snowshoe running - identical softshell fabric on the back and front. Last time I tried them on a couple of years ago, they'd changed the sizing in a weird way but they currently have all the sizes in Burlington so you could try before you buy. On cold days, you can add long johns. When I hike on snowshoes on really cold days, I use Goretex rain pants over heavier long johns.
