Noah Hoffman Olympic viewing party on Sunday
Aspen cross-country skiing Olympian Noah Hoffman will be featured at a special television-viewing party Sunday afternoon in downtown Aspen.
The Square Grouper at 304 E. Hopkins Ave. will host the community event. The restaurant will be showing the television broadcast of Hoffman’s final event in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, the 50-kilometer cross-country classic event.
The viewing party will run from noon to 4 p.m.
Earlier this month Hoffman raced in the 15 kilometer classic and the 30 kilometer skiathlon at the Sochi games. Hoffman is a former racer with the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club.
Hoffman’s mother, Sharon Hoffman, said the community is invited to stop by the Square Grouper to watch Hoffman’s Olympic finale in Sochi.
