In mixed doubles, Nedregotten and partner Kristin Moen Skaslien have represented Norway in the 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championships.

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.[2]

Nedregotten and Skaslien won the second leg of the 2018–19 Curling World Cup, defeating Switzerland's Jenny Perret and Martin Rios in the final. The pair also won the Grand Final of the Curling World Cup, defeating Canada's Laura Walker and Kirk Muyres in the final.
