Schmidhofer did manage to find her way back and made her comeback less than a year later in Lake Louise. However, the speed specialist, who won many fans with her cheerful, upbeat manner, has not been able to match her successful time before the fall. Schmidhofer won a total of four World Cup races (three downhill, one super-G) and was on the podium a further eight times. After winning the World Cup title, she took a detour and cracked the 200 km/h sound barrier at the 2019 World Speed Ski Championships in Vars. With 217.59 km/h, she secured the Austrian record.
