The northern hemisphere season is shaping up well for New Zealand adaptive skier Adam Hall, who has won back-to-back gold medals.

Hall today won a second gold medal in the slalom at the International Paralympic Committee Nor-Am races in Colorado.

He won a gold medal in the slalom yesterday, as well as bronze and silver medals in the Super-G this week.

"It has been a pretty full-on week, with challenging, cold conditions, though the last two slalom days have been fantastic," Hall said.

"It's been a very competitive week, with all races being split by just tenths of seconds.

"I'm very happy with today's skiing and with my overall performance of the week of competition. This has probably been the biggest Nor-Am series we have had, with many World Cup athletes from around the world."
