New Zealand's Paralympic champion skier Adam Hall has made a strong start to his 2013 campaign by winning three gold medals at a major event in the United States.

He won two Super G races and the slalom at the Winter Park Open in Colorado.

Hall, 24, uses the facilities as his North American training base and looked at home with a series of dominant displays.

He won the first Super G, the US nationals, by a 4.87sec margin and upped the ante in the following Nor-Am race to win by 6.19sec.

"I was extremely happy with how my day went and couldn't have asked for a better start to the New Year," said Hall.

The Dunedin skier won the gold medal in the slalom at the 2010 Winter Paralympics in Vancouver and is a hot prospect for next year's Games in Sochi, Russia.

"I'm extremely happy with how my skiing and training is going over here early season and am excited to see how the rest of the season unfolds."
