Marit is born and raised in the former olympic city of Lillehammer, Norway. At 19 she left home and moved to the small fishing village of Lofoten, know for it's majestic nature. It was here she fell in love with alpinism, especially skiing and climbing. Since then she's moved all over Norway working with skiing and climbing.
She might not be the one the climbed the hardest lines, or skied the hardest mountains, but she is by many people called one of Norway's happiest mountain guides. As a guide she get's to combine the two things she love the most – being outdoors and meet new people. She got her mountain guide training from “Norske Tindeveiledere”, which is UIAGM / IFMGA.
Today Marit lives in Sogndal, a small village next to the Sognefjord. It's a place with fantastic mountains with lots of snow during winter. Sogndal also has great climbing and offer great routes for Marits new passion – terrain mountain biking.
