NY mountains in general in CNY, got nothing on VT/ME. East NY are comparable with Gore, Whiteface to name a few that are pretty big. CNY has some decent snow since lake effects add a lot to it, but they're nothing in size to compare with VT/ME mountains.
You can always check on the mountain stats to take a peek at them. Oh and size doesn't always mean good runs but, VT/ME are north more so they will get more snow and have a longer winter usually. Labrador, Toggensburg, Song Mountain are the typical ones around CNY near Tully, like 40 mins from Syracuse.
Out west more is Bristol which is bigger than those 3, but can get really hard packed and icy. And even further west is Holiday which I've never heard of nor been to. Out east more is snow ridge which is known to get a shit load of powder off a lake around the area, but it's not that big of a mountain, prolly a lil shorter than the 3 I mentioned near Syr, but they have good terrain, but no parks (least when I was there over 12-15 years ago). And then even further east near Albany are the bigger ones I mentioned which are as close as you will get to compare to the size of ones in VT/ME.
If you want to compare to Wach, I'd say Bristol would be the closest size wise. But to compare to Okemo, you gotta be on the east side of NY near Whiteface and Gore for that.
