Marianne Dahlmo was born and raised in Bodø, a town in the northern part of Norway. She was selected to the national team for the 1984-85 season at the age of 19, and won two gold medals at the 1986 Norwegian Championships over 5 km and 20 km. She placed second in the World Cup the same season behind her Finnish rival Marjo Matikainen. In 1987 she placed fifth in the 10 km classical style at the World Championships in Oberstdorf, and at the 1988 Winter Olympics she was a member of the silver medal winning Norwegian relay team.
