Defending champion Anja Huber of Germany claimed her first skeleton World Cup win of the season Saturday to clinch her fourth European title.
The 28-year-old Huber was leading when the first run was canceled due to heavy snowfall, but she completed the second in 59.87 seconds to claim the event.
"It's always stupid when a run is canceled. But I'm happy that I came down so well again in the conditions," Huber said.
Katharina Heinz of Germany was 0.1 second behind to claim her first European medal, with Britain's Shelley Rudman third, 0.12 seconds back.
Mellisa Hollingsworth of Canada finished fifth and leads the overall standings after four events by one point from Marion Thees of Germany, who came fourth.
