Both Bear Mountain Resorts are unique in their own right and depending on your experience, you will find just the type of skiing/snowboarding that's right for you. Both Ski Resorts are owned by the same company and your ski ticket is good at either location. You can catch a shuttle bus out front which runs every few minutes between Snow Summit and Bear Mountain.
Snow Summit Resort is probably a little more Family oriented if your taking the whole family skiing. Don't get me wrong, there is a few runs up there that will give just about any advanced skier or snowboarder a good run for your money, but over-all your family might have a better time skiing here especially if you are at the beginner to intermediate ski level.
