In 1994 she married Swiss cross country skier Giachem Guidon, and competed under the name of Moen-Guidon from 1995-99. The pair divorced, and from 2000 she again competed under her maiden name of Moen. She won 12 national cross-country championships titles from 1993-2002, won the women’s class at the Birkebeiner for five consecutive years, 1998-2002, and then ended her international career after the 2003 World Championships. She later ran the Anita Moen Ski School in her home village of Trysil together with her daughter Caroline Moen Guidon.
