Did it, but I don't totally see a need for heated goggles.  30 degrees C is like 86 degrees F, that seems pretty hot to me.

Two thoughts:

 

- the phrasing of your "priority" questions isn't clear: it is not clear that all the boxes should have a number between 1 and 5.    

 

Given 6, 7, 8 boxes and a 1-5 priority scale it is natural for a responder to assume that there should be only one priority 5, only one priority 4 and so on, with 0 being assumed for the ones that aren't filled in.

 

- your Epic log-in name could be biasing the answer to one of the questions.

If the heating feature prevented fogging fine - otherwise you give off so much heat from your head that plenty is trapped by any old goggle that fits properly. And given that most people are wearing helmets now, it is overheating that is a bigger problem.

 

And aside from boot heaters I don't think a single electronically heated piece of ski gear has caught on.

Given unlimited funds I still wouldn't buy a heated ski goggle.  As aschick says, overheating is a bigger problem than being cold.

Heated goggle foam? The issue with goggles is cold lenses + any moisture at all = fogging. Find some way to heat the lenses (like the rear window defogger on a car) and then you've got something.

If you are heating them that warm aren't you going to have snow day melting problems on the lenses?

Another problem could be that if the foam gets wet and then is heated that high you'll get fogged up.
