A basic avalanche awareness course should be more than enough for you to learn the objective hazards. If backcountry riding becomes something you want to pursue, than you should take a Level I.
QFT I was going to take a trip to Alaska next year, but changed it because I don't have the money or time for the training and gear. I wanted to go out of bounds because that is the real experience, but it is a death sentence without the right gear and knowledge. NEVER go out of bounds without the proper things.
