American skier Lindsey Vonn claimed victory in just her second race back after almost a year out through injury.
The four-time overall World Cup champion won the downhill at Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada, in a time of one minute 50.48 seconds.
The 30-year-old's time was nearly half a second quicker than USA team-mate Stacey Cook, with another American, Julia Mancuso, in third.
Vonn has had a shin fracture and two knee operations in the past two years.
"I fought so hard to be back where I am, at the top of the podium," Vonn said after her 60th World Cup victory.
"It means the world to me, it's just unbelievable. It's like a dream day."
In her comeback race on Friday, Vonn finished eighth, also in a downhill race, nearly a second down on race winner Tina Maze.
She will continue her comeback in Sunday's Super-G.
Vonn's last World Cup victory came in January 2013 in a giant slalom in Maribor and she is now only two wins short of the all-time record of 62 held by Austria's Annemarie Moser-Proell.
