Switzerland, which is the world and Olympic champion in the discipline, was 2-0 down in the final against Olympic bronze medalist Norway when Holdener defeated Mina Fuerst Holtmann and Yule edged Sebatian Foss-Solevaag, who was left with no chance after losing a ski pole early in his run.
In the semifinals, Switzerland rallied to beat Germany 3-1 while Norway got the same result against Canada, which upset Austria 4-0 in the previous round. Germany finished third after beating Canada in the small final.
The United States did not compete in the nine-nation event, which is a parallel giant slalom competition with teams consisting of two men and two women. Each skier competes against one opponent from the other team in a one-run format. The team winning the most runs wins the tie. In case of 2-2, the added run times decide.
The team event has been part of the World Cup Finals since 2006. Switzerland has won it a record four times, while Austria and Sweden triumphed on three occasions. The World Cup Finals continue with the women's slalom and the men's giant slalom on Saturday.
