Lens color?

I've always used the cheap, orange lens goggles, but I have trouble making out the terrain with them on. It's hard for me to see the bumps and dips on the mountain. What color lens would one be able to see the most clearly out of?

orange is the best so maybe your eyes are bad? pink is another good colour

Oh yeah...probably should have mentioned that I'm partially color blind...I always end up just taking the goggles off, but I'll be going out a lot this year and decided that its probably better for my eyes to wear goggles.

Also, will double lens prevent fogging?

double lenses are the standard for goggles, and while they fight fogging, it's still possible to fog your goggles. Things like taking your goggles off on the lift to air them out will prevent fogging too

I used the regular DX last year so I imagine the lenses are very similar. They were really good as far as fogging went.
