Default Park city. Need answers.

Going to park city march 13-20th. No snow in the forecast.
SOrry for repeat posts but i just have alot of questions i dont think of at the same time.
ANyway i was wondering.
1. If it doesnt snow for around a week or two, will there still be sorta only mildly tracked out powder if i hike off of jupiter lift or mcconkeys lift or will it just be really mogely with no pow.

2. As a 14 year old snowboarding with bro whos 13 and friend, do we need any avalanche or back country training or equipment to hike off of jupiter lift or mcconkeys. My understanding is that it is still part of the resort but im not sure. Dont know if thats a really stupid question but where im from the "mountains" have 400 - 700 feet of vertical.
Thanks

Just typed out a huge response which got deleted when I sent.

Park city is not located in the south west, it's intermountain.

Park city is the last place you want to look for powder in utah, the worst resort if you're looking to shred some powder.

park city temps rise so much faster than all the other resorts close by (snowbird, brighton, solitude etc.) these resorts are within in 1 or 2 miles and get triple the snowfall.

this is a record breaking low season for snowfall for the entire western us, pc is hurting really bad.

so basically you are crazy if you're going to PC for powder. you have so much better luck at snowbasin, powder mountain,brighton, solitude,

Sorry bout location, will repost in correct location.
Bout park city. My parents dont ski or snowboard so we had to stay in park city as there are yoga studios and such.
We will be spending time at other resorts, i think only for one day.
Maybe snowbird, snowbasin or solitude.
BTW, parents bought PC lift tickets for most of days, so thats done.
Also you never actually answered my question, im sure you did in your long reply but still need to know.
Thanks

There will be no pow in PC 2 days after a storm. Places like solitude and brighton will have pow long after storms though.

This is the avalanche death year, if you don't have full equipment and training DO NOT hike out of bounds!

Couple weeks back a few people died in PC at the canyons in an avy. More recently some snowmobilers didn't make it.

Default out of bounds

i would never hike out of bounds as i dont have any training or equip.
What im asking is, are runs like Portuguese gap, rhino, warzone and scotts bowl considered out of bounds.
