Vermont is going to be the closest decent riding and it is not going to be on par with the Western areas as mentioned. Hunter, Belleayre Windham are the closest areas. Mountain Creek NJ is maybe the closest. These places are bumps though. Don't expect Italian level ski areas.

When you say New York, I'm going to assume New York City.

There are mountains in catskills area of upstate NY such as windham, bellearye, hunter, etc.

Stay away from mountain creek unless you want to do strictly park.

Your best bets are to travel a bit further and go to Vermont. Stratton, Killington, Okemo.

If you want to travel even further then try Jay Peak.

Also assume you mean NYC. Your best bet will be bus trips to either the Catskills (~2.5 hour ride one way) or Vermont (4 - 5 hours). Bus trips range between $80 - $105. That's round trip bus fare, lift ticket and depending on the company, a bagel with water. These sites won't have any info now but check this thread when you are in NY and they will:

Colorado is something like 36hrs by car. You would have to fly. Utah is even further. I don't know if that distance can work with your trip.

How long will staying in the US? If you're staying for a few weeks in might be in your best interest to take a flight to Colorado or Utah for a few days. If you don't have that much time to spare then taking a bus from NYC to Vermont is your best option in my opinion. There are several bus services that do this. I do this just about every other weekend during the winter. I use Emilio's (Emilio's Ski & Snowboard Shop NYC). Their website looks like it was made in 1992, but they're legit. They have one pick up location in Manhattan.

The ovrride.com bus trips are great. They give out beer on the ride back.

Enjoy New York, leave the snowboard equipment a casa.
