On this site, pants are broken into a couple different categories:

Bibs- Waterproof bibs, great for skiing, ice climbing etc.
Casual Pants- If you'd wear it to a mall, then it's probably here
Travel Pants- Convertible pants, and other quick drying pants
Fleece Pants- Great insulation layer pants
Rain Pants- Good to have if you don't want to get wet
Ski Pants- Ski and mountaineering pants
Snowboarding Pants- Pants built to board
Softshell Pants- More breathable, a little less waterproof, but great active shell pants
Technical Pants- If it's not anywhere else, it'll be in here

Key features to look out for are seam taping/welding (for waterproof pants), a gusseted crotch, articulated knees, and vents.

Key Features

Waterproof pants have several features that you need to look for. Cheaper pants will often use a DWR or spray-on waterproofing layer to make them waterproof, while better pants will use a combination of a DWR with a laminate waterproofing layer (like Gore-Tex). Also watch for pants that use seam taping and seam welding to seal them up.

Many ski pants and bibs have built in gators. These keep snow from going up your pant legs, by sealing them up next to your boots.

Gusseted Crotch
Travel pants and climbing pants incorporate a gusseted crotch. This is an extra panel in between the legs that gives extra room and extra flexibility for the wearer.

Articulated Knees
Nicer pants have a built in bend at the knee (articulation). They are harder to build because it requires bent seams and extra panels and therefore makes the pants more expensive. They tend to move easier and do not bind up as much when moving.
