It's about time for an upgrade.
Ditch your old cotton long-johns and switch over to the Vapor Wool 3/4 legging. Introducing wool into your baselayer wardrobe is game changing; breathable material keeps you cool under your ski pants, and its fibers naturally prevents body odor unlike other synthetic materials.

I've had a pair for a few years now and they are still going strong. Sometimes during the winter I wear them for a week or more everyday when I have a lot of stuff to do outside. I've worn them hunting, hiking, snowshoeing, skiing; to the office, to parties, and everything in between.
The weight is good for all those activities, active outdoors down to single digits with appropriate outerwear, and indoors during the cold season when you want to feel cozy.
The lower leg needs little insulation, and you probably will be wearing a boot, boot sock, gaiters, etc. so getting rid of the underwear layer there makes sense and works well.
