He's coming home.

Paralympic gold medallist Adam Hall returns to Otago today on a flight scheduled to reach Dunedin Airport at 4.25pm.

Hall will be greeted by family, friends, supporters and at least one person puffing on a certain musical instrument that always greets returning Otago sports heroes.

Organisers of a function to be held at the airport immediately following Hall's arrival have encouraged all of his fans to greet him and celebrate his achievements.

Hall won a gold medal in the standing slalom at the Vancouver Paralympics last month, adding seventh in the super G and eighth in the super combined.

The Outram-raised, Wanaka-based skier will now head into another Olympic cycle as he chases more gold at the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.
