Second in the women’s final race of the season was Thea Louise Stjernesund, 0.06 seconds back. For the 26-year-old Norwegian it was the first podium of her career. Third place went to Canadian Valerie Grenier (+0.20 sec.).

Franziska Gritsch was classified as the best Austrian in twelfth place (+1.25 seconds) directly ahead of Ricarda Haaser (+1.34 seconds). Katharina Liensberger (18th) and Stephanie Brunner (19th) finished outside the top 15 and thus missed out on World Cup points.
