Chill Spots on the Slopes of Telluride

I've been visiting a friend for a few days in Telluride, CO and found a couple of spots on the mountain worth mention.  Since the conditions aren't ideal, I've been stopping for drinks and reading at various places.

 

Chairs at the high camp at the top of the Project Express lift for some San Pellegrino & vodka + The Art of Learning

A nice place called the Beach under lift 4.  Great for having a drink and relaxing to live music in the afternoon until the ski patrol kicks everyone out.

And a chill deck on the backside of the mountain down from lift 15.  Hardly anyone around and I hear you can borrow a grill from the lifties if you're lucky.
