If you don't have backcountry experience (and the gear to go with it) then don't even consider hiking out of bounds there. If you do have both, then of course adhere to avy conditions and talk to the locals/patrollers about options. Lots of people get lost/die there.
-- Edit --
Note about above CBC article about 2 skier deaths at RMR... They followed tracks out of bounds without knowing where they were going, then crossed a rope, and also past large signs reading "Last chance, life threatening terrain below, turn around" (or something along those lines). It was below the base of the ripper chair.
Also a lot of people getting stuck in the Montana Creek drainage as well, below the cat ski area. A long cold night if you're lucky... most requiring heli-rescue out.
