completed the course in one minute 4.36 seconds and showed no
signs of the back pain which troubled her in St Mortiz last
It was the 78th World Cup race win of Vonn's career but the
first since the downhill at Garmisch in January.
Vonn finished 0.31 seconds ahead of Italy's Sofia Goggia with
Norway's Ragnhild Mowinckel in third.
"I had a bad start to the season, and now I'm at a much better
level, this win is very important for me," she told Swiss
television, adding that she would also race in another Super G
"I hope the weather helps tomorrow and we can have a good race."
Liechtenstein's Tina Weirather, third in the overall World Cup
standings at the start, crashed on a steep curve high on the
course but skied away unharmed.
Switzerland's Lara Gut, recovering from an anterior cruciate
knee injury, was ninth.
