Snow Summit v. Bear Mtn.

I'm new to the area and am skiing with a friend for one day next week who is also not a local. We are advanced skiers and need to decide between Bear Mtn. and Snow Summit. I've been to Bear Mtn. and wasn't that thrilled -- 80% boarders and the two decent lifts were not connected. There was one steep run at the top, but it got old after a while.

Is Snow Summit better? We're looking for the most advanced runs possible in the area, including any bumps, shutes, etc.
