The pair have finished 4th, 5th, 3rd, 9th, 5th and 9th respectively. They represented Norway in the mixed doubles tournament at the 2018 Winter Olympics. They lost the bronze medal game against the Olympic Athletes from Russia, but due to a positive testing of meldonium from Alexander Krushelnitskiy, their bronze medals were stripped and given to Nedregotten and Skaslien.[3]

In the first leg, Skaslien was paired with Sander Rølvåg, but missed the final, and was paired with Thomas Ulsrud in the third leg, where she lost in the final to Canada's Kadriana Sahaidak and Colton Lott.
