Kind of...but not completely fucked. You just have to re-apply the catcrap every so often.

i try to never touch the inside of my goggles, if i fall and get snow in my goggles then i just shake as much as i can out and let them air dry. usually doesn't take longer then 5-10 mins for it to dry out.

Exactly. Just make sure you don't do it when they are wet...wiping them gently when its dry with a microfibre will be fine.

that sounds like a good idea. i always hate when i forget to take my goggles out of the bag when i get home after a spring or pow day and the next day the lenses have moisture in between the lens.
