When I bought mine I told the guy that I was taking it into the snow and he sold me a packet of anti fog strips that go inside the case to soak up any moisture that may get there. Mine hasnt fogged up once and I reuse the strips time and time again.

If this happens on the mountain just open the case and let the cold air in. Might take a few minutes. I had to do this every time I had the camera in my pocket. I took the camera out and placed the case on the snow like /\. Never had fogging after doing this but it is a pain.

Once the camera heats up again (just by normal operation), all the moisture thats inside the camera will try to "exit" again and it will stick to the housing and lens. There's no escape from having to use the anti-fog inserts. There are things you can do to minimize fogging (i.e. always keep the camera in the housing and closed) but it's not 100% proof to work, especially in cold weather where any moisture will quickly condensate.

Get the inserts and be happy. I refused to pay the 16 bucks inserts at gopro, but now there are some third-party brands that are exactly the same but less than half the price, check on ebay for "fogfree inserts"
