Car-bound family or an avid backpacker? There's a national park out there perfect for you.

Best for Winter Sports: Grand Teton, Wyoming

1 of 12

Grand Teton has some of the most rugged peaks and terrain in the country. Located only a few miles south of overly crowded Yellowstone, this park is often overlooked and is not nearly as accessible by car as others. Many of the peaks and alpine lakes can be reached within a day's hike, but others require technical climbing gear to summit.

This area is also a great winter destination, as it is home to the Jackson Hole ski resort and some of the best backcountry skiing and snowboarding in the lower 48. Stay in the nearby town of Jackson for a nice dinner (try Wild Sage at The Rusty Parrot Lodge) after a long day of hiking or skiing.
