It sounds like the oil pressure sender. I wouldn't expect a bad oil pump to give good normal pressures like you have. The ones I have seen are low all around and ultra low at hot idle. The only way to truly tell though is to put a mechanical oil pressure gauge on it. Changing out an oil pressure sensor is pretty easy though and cheaper than buying another oil pressure gauge setup

Fixed - replaced the oil pressure sender (didn't see the other oil pressure switch). Oil was 40psi at idle cold, 60psi warm while skiing and 20-25psi warm idling. No more alarms!

Beats the alternative of bad bearings and bad oil pump!!!

Glad it's solved..
