Default Buying boots at a resort? Break in time?

I'm heading out to Whistler in March and I'm thinking I need some better boots. I have flat feet and always struggled with foot pain. I'm hoping I can find someone out there who knows what they are doing and I can finally after all these years get a pain free ride.

I saw my doctor and he said to try some over the counter orthotics and schedule and appt. with the podiatrist. I just have a feeling this guy is going to have no clue when it comes to snow sports so I'm thinking about cancelling the appt.

My only concern is that if I get the boots on the mountain there will be 0 time for me to break them in. What do you guys think? Does heat molded inserts take care of the break in problem? I know it wont do much for the flat foot issue.

thanks
