Some of the low safe terrain Snowolf posted a while back (in his backcountry course thread) looks appetizing though. Maybe one day.
Do it up man! Get to know folks in your area that are experienced in the backcountry. Most are plenty willing to help out the newbies as long as you're clear that you're serious about learning the ropes. If I'm out with people I don't really know or I'm out on my own, I'm a 20 degree meadow skipper. You can definitely ride backcountry while completely avoiding avalanche terrain if you know how to read the terrain and the conditions.
