Her 10th place provided the AIS scholarship holder with her second top 10 finish within a week, indicating that Owens' season is gathering momentum after a slow start to the year.
The fourth round World Cup race was won by Canadian Kelsey Serwa, ahead of Switzerland's Fanny Smith and Canada's Ashleigh McIvor in third.
Katya Crema finished 18th while OWI team mate, Sami Kennedy, was back in 23rd poition.
While Owens was pleased to achieve a back-to-back top 10, she was disappointed that a wrong selection of ski wax prevented her from finishing in a higher place.
The incorrect wax selection was also made by Scott Kneller who had to be content with 24th place during a day in the French Alps that he would like to forget.
German Daniel Bohnacker won the men's race while Austria's Andreas Matt, the competition leader, and compatriot Patrick Koller filled the other two podium positions.
Kneller is now ranked 10th on the World Cup points table. Anton Grimus is ranked 24th after finishing 39th at in Alpe d'Huez.
AIS ski cross program head coach Matt Lyons said that the team expected the race to be held in overcast conditions and chose a ski wax that was better suited to much colder temperatures.
"This was simply a live and learn situation," Lyons said. "This was not a skiing issue.
"In fact Scott was first or second out at the start of his heat but then it became obvious that he had no acceleration at all
"I hate putting the day down to those issues but that's exactly what happened today."
