Default No Fog Goggles - is there such a thing.

Hello,

On very cold days, my goggles fog up. They actually ice up while
going down a hill.

Is there something that will help reduce or stop my goggles from
fogging on really cold days?

Thanks,

Tmuldoon

New goggles? Seems like they don't let the air circulate.

There even exist goggles with built-in fan

You can try using an anti-fog cloth, available in any ski shop. It's a
little cloth impregnated with anti-fog solution, just use it to wipe the
inside of the goggles out. It's very useful to have in your pocket if
you crash.

Another problem might be how you dress on cold days. If you cover up
your mouth and nose with a scarf or neck tube or whatever, then you're
going to tend to fog your goggles more.

Another thing that causes fogging is getting moisture inside. Many
people will move their goggles up onto their hat during the chair ride,
and then back down again. The problem with that is that snow or other
moisture on your hat then gets into your goggles and causes fogging.
The best thing to do is put them on your face and leave them there all
the time.

Of course you also need to have good goggles. They should be
double-lens with good ventilation.

Get two paned lenses, preferably polarizing, with a fan.

The only time my Smith double lens goggles fog up is when I leave them up on my
helmet too long on wet snow days.

I agree. I use one of those face masks with the nose and mouth molded
in (like some models that Seirus makes), and usually don't have a
problem. I am not the most stylish guy on the slopes, but it works
well for me.

This is exactly what I do, and usually don't get any problems.
