Vlhová ran a combined 1:54.66. Speaking to the public-service television RTVS after the first run, the Slovak skier thanked her fans for their support.

"I wanted to go fast, which I managed. But the top part was not good, I need to take a look at where I lost time and improve it," she said. "I've got new ski, I've tested them in training and they were great, so we decided to use them and we did well.

The Slovenian Meta Hrovat and Swiss Wendy Holdener shared the third place.
