I'm looking for a good ski boot fitter no more than three hours away from northern Westchester County, NY. Do you know of any? How about any other tips concerning boot fitting?

The last time I bought boots was from an amazing fitter up at Killington, but that's too far for me these days. This was almost ten years ago and I'm sure things have changed in the industry/process since then.
Difficulty: No (zero, zilch, nada) arches; extremely wide toe box; wide ankles; low, muscular calves and severely knock-kneed on left side.
I'm a professional ski instructor and spend about 100 days on snow each season. I will be looking for a performance (not race) boot and fit. I'll certainly need custom insoles, and almost definitely need shell work and canting plates under at least the left sole.
Are there specific certifications I should be looking for (e.g., pedorthist?)
Last time the fitting was included in the price of the boots, and came with a lifetime adjustment guarantee. Is it fair to assume that most reputable shops operate the same way?
So, people, who are your superstar fitters, and what should I expect from the process in 2013?
