Teamwork makes the dream work

MTB Verbier Team


Everyone involved with MTB Verbier shares a passion for the mountains and biking and we are all here to share our knowledge with you. You can be sure that with the MTB Verbier team by your side you will have a mountain biking experience you will never forget. Allow us to introduce the MTB Verbier team…

MTB Verbier is owned and operated by Erik den Oudendammer and Jess Kroon.

Like many, we were first attracted by Verbier’s reputation for incredible skiing, but unable to drag ourselves away as the snow melted, we were delighted and amazed to discover a world class mountain biking venue under the snow. Since 2003 we have called this region our home. With skiing in the winter and biking in the summer we have found the perfect lifestyle in the mountains and we are passionate to share our experiences and our knowledge of the area with you!

Swiss qualified MTB guide
Jess spends as much time guiding as possible, next to welcoming and hosting guests and managing MTB Verbier. Jess is happiest riding on sunny days and sitting with others around the campfire
Strengths: Enthusiasm, people skills, local knowledge, making people feel at home as a host.
Riding tip: A smile on your face will make your fear disappear!
Favorite trail: Comfort zone (our home run)


Lee is a passionate chef with a lot of experience in cooking for a wide range of clients all over the world.

Strengths: cooks as well as he rides bikes…When he is not making our biking guests a daily breakfast, lunch or 3 course dinner, he tries to spend as many hours on his downhill bike! In the Verbier bike park or any other trails that involve serious steep trails, massive rock formations, snowy glaciers, rooted forest runs, tight switchbacks or narrow trails with big drops on the edge, heli biking, nothing scares this experienced mountain biker, who we are very lucky with to have on the team.
Riding tip: Speed is your friend…
Favourite trail: La Tzoumaz
