The 17-year-old stormed home in a time of 57.38 seconds - edging out compatriot Fabienne Suter by 0.63 secs to seal a home one-two while Italy's Nadia Fanchini was third, trailing Gut by 0.87.
Gut has fond memories of competing in her home country - earning three of her five podium places in Switzerland.
"To win at home in front of my friends and my family is a carbon copy of what I had imagined in my dreams," she said.
"I could not hope for anything better than winning here."
American Lindsey Vonn maintains the overall lead despite skiing off course.
The defending overall World Cup champion was one of many racers caught out by a bump in a fast section after a sharp right-hand turn.
