Our team

Wouter Berendsen, owner

Chalet Beyond is still a big part of Wouters life. “Of course, my family is the most important thing for me. Besides that, a day without thinking about the mountains is a day not fully lived.”

Every day I’m looking for new opportunities to improve our product. I started Chalet Beyond in 2005 and as being the owner of the company, I’m busy with all sorts of things, like creating new programs, talk with our guests about their reservation or managing my staf. “I love being outside and you can often find me on my bike or skiing on a beautiful mountain slope.”

The past…

During my childhood I mainly played hockey. During my study I decided that I needed a bit more adventure and started to specialize in outdoor sports, like rock climbing, canyoning and of course skiing. In the beginning skiing was just a passion, but it turned into my profession. Besides skiing, cycling is also a really big passion for me. I cycled a lot of big races like the Marmotte and enjoyed every minute of it” ,


“For me, it is important to share my passion for sports with other people. I really like to work with other people as a team and give the customer what they ask for. I hope I can give them an unforgettable holiday which they will remember. So please, if you got any ideas, improvements and feedback, let me know.”

Catharina started to work for Chalet Beyond in december 2013. She loves cycling and skiing in the mountains and with her job, she can combine these things perfectly. “During my travels, I learned to enjoy every moment and follow my heart.”

Cycling and skiing

“I started to race on a bicycle when I was 10 years old. First of course the little races, but after a while also more important races. At my best, I cycled international races with a ladies elite team. After these years, I decided to give this up and became a recreational cyclist. I still need to climb the little hills in the Netherlands as fast as I can though. In the Alpes, I climbed all the big cols, like Galibier, Alpe d’Huez, Stelvio, Mont Ventoux, Glandon, Madeleine. Besides cycling I like skiing during the winter and try to enjoy skiing the mountains at least once a year.”

Study and work

After my study Leisure Science I worked at a big sport company and organised several sport projects. After five years I decided that is was time to travel the world. I also went to New Zealand and stayed here for a year.I mainly hiked, skied and enjoyed the beautiful country. With this experience I wanted to find a job in which I could combine my passion for the outdoors with work. I found it at Chalet Beyond.”

Sport heeft altijd een grote rol gespeeld in mijn leven. Ik ben zelf een fanatiek voetballer, maar zo goed als elke sport vind ik leuk. Een jaar of acht geleden is daar een nieuwe grote passie bijgekomen, de racefiets. Na een aantal zomers de bergen in geweest te zijn met mijn fiets heb ik vorig jaar meegedaan aan Alpe d’HuZes. Een prachtige ervaring. Na vijf jaar bij een sportorganisatie gewerkt te hebben kwam Chalet Beyond op mijn pad. Een mooie kans om mijn toeristische opleiding en passie voor wielrennen te combineren. Wat is er mooier dan reizen samenstellen die je zelf ook wel wilt ondernemen!?
