Yeah, it's steep but not that much more if you factor in the extended season length and night skiing. If you are 23 and under I believe they offer passes for 539. Also I'd check out the bcc pass it's only 300 more but gets you solitude access as well. Plus I think with either season pass you get 4 free passes to deer valley which ain't bad.
I'm in the same boat, I did my last 2 seasons at pc because it was such a great deal, but every time it snowed a foot in the cottonwoods, pc got like 4 inches and it drove me nuts. if you aren't hitting the Colorado resorts for the epic pass very often just bite the bullet and save a bit for a month, the snow quality, smaller lift lines, and better vibes are why I'm switching.
