I ran into the same problem for my wife. Even Arcteryx didn't fit her as we looked for Goretex pants or bibs. We ended up buying Arcteryx bibs on SteapandCheap.com at a good discount, then we fit them and sent them off to a Goretex tailor ( http://www.rainypass.com/
). They will shorten the thigh and lower leg and re-sew the vent zippers. In essence, she'll get a pair that fit properly. Of course, this extensive work is going to cost a lot, but she'll have top quality bibs that fit.
In your case, you are looking for lined pants. You might call this company and see if they will work on them. You may also want to do a web-search for ski clothing tailors. I found one in Denver and other in Idaho, but chose the link above because they specialized in Goretex and their help desk was responsive to our rather complicated alterations.
Good luck and welcome to the board,
