Home racer Lara Gut took the honours in the Super-G at St. Moritz in Switzerland on Saturday morning.
The 18-year-old came down in a time of 57.38 seconds, ahead of compatriot Fabienne Suter and Italy's Nadia Fanchini who was third.
The win moved Gut up to ninth in the overall rankings in the World Cup and having finished fifth last year, this improvement bodes well for the rest of her season.
Suter continued her good form at St. Moritz, with a time 58.01 seconds and the 23-year-old has now picked up two podium finishes in two days to take her to 11th in the standings.
Fanchini pushed hard for the top spot on the podium, but a slight mistake half way down the course cost her valuable time and she finished 87/100 off the pace.
Friday's super combined winner Anja Paerson managed a time of 58.39 to take fourth and earn the Swede her a third top-five finish this season.
Overall World Cup leader, Lindsey Vonn failed to finish for a second day running. Having skied out in the Super-G run of the super combined on Friday, the American was this time misled by a deceptive change in the slope and missed a gate.
One of Vonn’s main rivals, Maria Riesch also made a mistake at the same gate, failing to take advantage of Lindsey's unfortunate weekend.
Driving snow welcomed the racers on an overcast and grey morning and the organisers took the decision to lower the starting gate.
Heavy fog and wet snow added to the difficulty of a course which already offered little or no landmarks for racers to get their bearings, and as a result the race officials decided to highlight the course for the racers. Despite the aid of the coloured snow, a dozen racers were unable to finish.
Carolina Ruiz Castillo, who came down with bib number three, was the first competitor to crash out, but was able to walk away.
Emily Brydon, who came second in the Super G discipline in Friday's Super Combined, was the second competitor to crash, but again the fall looked worse than it was, as the Canadian seemed more upset about her mistake than hurt by the fall.
Katrin Zettel, seventh in the overall rankings, was unable to complete the race as she misjudged a turn and ended up missing a gate.
Nicole Hosp, who came second overall on Friday, managed a time of 58.43, to leave her in fifth place.
The World Cup will continue on Sunday morning with the second downhill event of the season and Vonn will be looking to make up for a disappointing weekend so far, and repeat her success in Lake Louise.
