Scandinavia is a good option, the more north you go the better. For me the nature there is more remote, more 'raw' compared to the Alps.

I actually had a backyard board like that back in the early 90s, you can wear whatever boots you want with that board. Snowboard boots were developed for supportive snowboard bindings, those old boards didn't have supportive bindings, just toe straps like what you found on water skis and surf boards.
