without being there with you, no one can tell you if these boots fit or if there are boots which might fit better.
If you're not sure about them, I would take them along on the trip, but plan on demo-ing boots ... especially the first day or 2.
Depending where you're going you might/should find a decent shop for demoing. Then you can try boots and 'fit' to what might suit you.
I wouldn;t chance ruining my ski trip, and markup some boots which might need to be returned.
If things are that 'iffy' I wouldnt chance it...
if you absolutely require boot mods I wouldn;t hurry through that process - nor would I try skiing in something which hurts from the get-go.
especially on a multi-day trip.
the extra $40-$50 a day for good demos might not seem as money well spent, until you find that you can;t even put your foot into boots on day 2 or 3 - whether they are the Dalbellos or any set of demos...
