New Zealand's Adam Hall has snared a slalom bronze medal on the final day of the para alpine skiing world championships in Tarvisio, Italy.

Hall was second following his first run, just 0.30 seconds behind eventual winner Arthur Bauchet of France.

Austrian Thomas Grochar stormed into second place in the second run, pushing Hall back to third.

The 29-year-old Kiwi, who won gold in the same event at the 2010 Winter Paralympics, was still pleased with the outcome.

New Zealand finish with three medals. Corey Peters earned silver medals in the downhill and Super-G sitting events.

"It was definitely a great way to finish and I'm really happy to walk away with a World Championship podium in slalom," says Hall.

Hall and Peters will next compete at events in Japan ahead of the World Cup finals in March at PyeongChang, Korea, the venue of next year's Paralympics.
