Gut moved into an unassailable lead in the overall standings on 1,362 points with four races at Saint Moritz next week to go.
US star Lindsey Vonn, who has had to call a premature end to her season with a knee injury, is second on 1,235 points, with Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg third on 1,007.
Gut claims Switzerland's first crystal globe since Carlo Janka in 2010 and she becomes the first Swiss woman skier to accomplish the feat since Vreni Schneider in 1995.
