Sweden's Therese Borssen was second, 0.82 behind.
Kathrin Zettel, winner of Thursday's giant slalom, came in third and trailed Schild by 1.35.
Austria's Nicole Hosp, who overtook Schild in the World Cup standings Thursday, did not finish after losing control on the icy and bumpy course.

The two-time overall World Cup champion Anja Paerson of Sweden did not start because of problems with her left knee after Thursday's giant slalom, in which she finished sixth.
