Well since I just got back from visiting Jackson, WY. I would have to say the Teton mountain range. Could change in the future but that mountain range is beautiful.

Have only visited in pictures, but for sheer beauty of the interface between nature and man, would have to say the Alps.

Of the ones I've seen I'd have to say the Canadian Rockies. But, I haven't seen as many as I'd like, yet.

Although I live very close to the High Sierras and Lake Tahoe my favorite mountain range is the "Southern Alps"
The Southern Alps is a mountain range extending along much of the length of New Zealand's South Island, reaching its greatest elevations near the island's western side. The term "Southern Alps" generally refers to the entire range, although separate names are given to many of the smaller ranges that form part of it.

The range includes the South Island's Main Divide, which separates the water catchments of the more heavily populated eastern side of the island from those on the west coast.[1] Politically, the Main Divide forms the boundary between the Canterbury and West Coast Regions.

If you have the red/blue 3D glasses, there are amazing 3D pictures of the Alps on this website by Pierre Gidon:
Alpes_Stereo : 3D stereophotos, anaglyphs of the Alps
Pierre is one of the finest 3D photographers I know, and his use of hyper-interocular photos make for stunning work.
