The largest cliff is furthest skiers right, but conditions are rarely, if ever, prime to jump off of this feature. Since this area is right above HWY 40, this is one of the areas that the DOT regularly bombs, making the snowpack quite thin.
The 80's is also an area that gets tricky, inconsistent winds. Even with the same prevailing winds at higher elevations the 80's can sometimes be loaded or stripped of snow. Due to this, and other factors, this area often avalanches, so be very aware of what you're getting yourself into, especially if you choose to jump off any of the larger cliffs.
Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.
