It's up to personal preference, what do you want more.
But do you know what board/type you want? Freestyle, free ride etc. etc. It's important to do some research into different boards, then actually go look at them. Do you already have good boots, or bindings yet? If you don't, that can easily add hundreds more to the overall money spent and be time consuming finding the right fit/combo. How advanced of a rider are you? If you are anything over an beginner rider, then I recommend you get your own gear to suit how you developed your riding.
But if your still new to the game, get a season pass and just work on you riding. Build up your skills and knowledge base, spend that money on lessons etc. and by next season you should know what you're looking for judging by what you liked most to do on the slopes.
Haha it's a tough choice
