Help, stop Ice/snow from sticking to goggles!

I ride at a midwest resort that makes snow. They are making it during the riding hours. The ice/snow mix they make sticks to my goggles lens.

Is there anything I can put on the lens to keep it from sticking?

I have the smith cascade goggles with the rose tint lenses.
Are there any goggles out there that have better lenses that will keep ice/snow from sticking on them?

Help, I'm planning on riding tonite and they are making snow again.

Funny. There is nothing you can do to avoid the ice/snow from hitting your goggles. There are snow guns everywhere and the wind pushes everything around.

I've never heard of this problem before.

Try putting Rain X on the outside of your lens.

The man made snow gets so dry in cold cold weather that it acts like dry ice and sticks to everything.

Man made snow acts like solid carbon dioxide?
