Whats your best setup for really cold weather climbing?

Im checking around for a way to mitigate the classic Khumbu cough and am considering getting something better than my buff to warm up the inhaled air. The buff is getting soaked by my breathing and quickly transformed into a nasty ice barrier.

Are there any good face masks which will work with a balaclava and without fogging the googles and without creating an ice fall on your cheek?
