Default Wearing Glasses on the slopes

Hi all,
first post. So hi to everyone. Looks like a great forum.

I've got a question regarding wearing glasses on the piste. When i'm out on season I don't mind wearing my Addidas custom ski goggles with lens inserts. But this year i'm not getting out much, so i'm getting into my technical riding at my local indoor snow slope. I feel like a bit of an idiot wearing full on head gear and goggles when i'm inside. So I want to wear my glasses. Only problem is that they steam up like mad! Has anyone got any insight to this? Ideas or tips very welcome!

Thanks in advance.

Your best option is contacts or lasik... there are tons of options for wearing your glasses under you goggles, but none of them are very elegant, and most goggles designed to fit over glasses aren't as nice looking. You can try the Smith Turbo goggles which have an electric fan built in, but reviews of them are so-so.

I wear a pair of Electric EG2, using "SeaDrops" on my glasses

Divers use spit or toothpaste to eliminate fogging of the dive mask. Spit on the lens and rub then rinse under running water. Same goes with toothpaste

Just wear your glasses, and get goggles that fit over them properly. That way you can take your goggles off as necessary, and still be able to see. And whatever you do, DON'T TAKE YOUR GOGGS OFF ONCE YOU'RE OUTSIDE.

And yes, I have glasses.
