On her two runs down the 1.25 kilometre course, the 26-year old took the ninth and fifth fastest times, and now sits 11th in the World Cup rankings, less than 10 points from the top 10.
"I was happy with both runs and a top 10 result in tough conditions," Steele said.
Her team-mate, Lucy Chaffer, had what she described as another disappointing day, with 14th best time on both runs seeing her finish 15th.
"It was a disappointing day. I chose the wrong runners for the conditions, and also made a few small mistakes," Chaffer said.
"It was a tough day, and there's not much you can do when that's the case."
Despite this, Chaffer still sits ninth in the World Cup.
The USA's Noelle Pikus-Pace returned to the top of the podium for the first time in nine years, with Germany's World Cup leader, Marion Thees, second, and her compatriot, Anja Huber, third.
In the Womens’ Bobsleigh event, Australians Astrid Radjenovic and Jana Pittman finished in 14th place. They improved from 17th after run one, setting the 10th quickest time on their second pass down the ice.
