Moto goggles for winter sports

I ride motocross and not looking forward to buying a set of winter sport goggles. I took my first snow board lesson last weekend and used my moto setup and was fog free 90% of the time. Whats the difference between the fancy winter sport stuff and regular goggles? do they ever fog? Will a thermal/winter lens fix the problem?

I tried moto goggles once cuz they were cheaper, big mistake... in anything under like 30F as soon as they hit my face they fogged or even iced up. The moto goggles are usually single paned and snow goggles are double paned so that cuts down on the fogging and what I think is probably the biggest difference. They have the sprays to make goggles not fog but I have tried one of these before that you spray on and it sucked.

They make double pane lenses for Mx Goggles. They work ok, but snow specific are definitely better

I'm sure you can find some oakley moto goggles cheap on eBay. Oakley has the removable lens covers that you peel off as needed.
