If you got the goggles new I'd assume they won't fog up. Some goggle have special instruction on how to handle. Pretty much it sounds like you can rub the anti-fog in the inside lens. My Oak's have instructions like don't rub the inside, shake moisture, then dab. Don't leave it inside the car hanging on the rear view mirror. Stuff like that.

But the main thing, don't cover your nose and you good to go. My goggle only fog when I start breathing beastly when I'm strapping my bindings on. I leave my goggles on for 3-4 hours straight.

It seems pretty gimmicky (and they're expensive), but the Smith Turbo Fan series work really well. I can't wear contacts and I can't wear glasses under my goggles cause I ride really hard and tend to crash on my face rather often which presses my glasses into my face which don't feel so good. So I bought prescription lens inserts that fit inside my Smith Phenom Turbo Fan goggles.

As far as I can tell the goggle lenses themselves never fog, just the prescription lenses when I get to the bottom of the chair lift. Then I kick the fan into high and the fog usually clears up half way up the lift.

All goggles fog. What you look for are goggles that are hard to fog and that recover quickly. In my experience oakley's performance is head and shoulders above other brands with one exception. That exception are the previously mentioned smith turbo fan series which are nearly impossible to fog when turned on. That performance is the result of a cumbersome fan and battery pack (not to mention the price!)

You want goggles that don't fog? Leave them on your eyes all day, don't take them off when you are on the chair lift, don't put them above your helmet. Leave them on.

^^This. I rarely take my goggles off, and they rarely fog on me. That being said, when I was less wise with my gogs, I always had the best luck with Oakley.

Smith Turbo fan goggles are the way to go if fogging is a problem for you. I use them for backcountry riding. Wearing them while I am skinning, which builds up the steam like nothing else. Without the fan, any goggle would be fogged. The hindrance is the price. They are pricey. Though if everything you own fogs, it's probably worth your money. Sites like Steep and Cheap, and Tramdock have them from time to time. I picked mine up for $60 on sac a few years ago. Keep you eyes open and you may luck out.

Another option you can look into is the Habervision eliminator, Scott also sells a rebranded version of exactly the same thing. They work with most goggles out there though my VZ feenoms were not one of them. I picked up a pair of Scott Fix's for super cheap and the eliminator for like $60 and now I have fan goggles. The upside to the eliminator over the Turbo Fan is that the fan sits inside the goggle and has an auto on/off feature when it senses moisture building on the inside of the lens.

I sweat like crazy when I ride and I still manage to keep the gogs clear by not removing them (like mentioned above) and carrying a little sponge made specifically for gogs. I only need the sponge on the rare cases I get snow in the gogs (i.e. fun crashes in powder). But it really works to dry out the lense and clear any fog from the snow.

Obviously decent lenses with good air flow, but that goes without saying.

Breath down through your mouth to prevent your breath from causing the fogging. I don't wear a mask when riding, but I learned that works for paintball masks. Obviously different, but similar idea.
