Ian Beveridge - Metaski Ski School, Val d'Isere - Centre

Skiing Made Easy with Unique Personalised Instruction Methods

Ian Beveridge's Ski School uses ground-breaking teaching techniques to help complete beginners get their skiing careers off to the best possible start and enables seasoned skiers to easily perfect their skills.

Ian is a fully qualified English speaking ski instructor with both UK and French national qualifications. He has been teaching in Val d'Isere for over 20 years so knows the best terrain for each level for skier. 

Ian and his team (who are all fully qualified English speaking instructors) offer the very highest standard of professional coaching and guiding, placing your safety, success and satisfaction, first. Ian's "MetaSki" teaching method is scientifically based and focuses on personal development. It provides a genuine alternative to the stringent commercial techniques used by other ski schools. These methods aim to enable rapid learning to ensure you grow towards self-mastery without any plateaus. They are also designed to eliminate all the major causes of fatigue, injury and fear. (You can read all about this unique coaching method on the Ski Instruction Blog - details on their website).

They advise a maximum of 4 students per lesson for morning, afternoon or all-day sessions.

Ian and his team also offer Off-Piste guiding for a maximum group of six individuals and they are able to provide avalanche transceivers. If you don't have your own shovel and probe, packs can easily be rented from local ski shops.

Race training is also available on the Tignes Glacier in both the Summer and Autumn seasons.

Tuition is also available in Tignes, Paradiski, The Three Valleys and range of other Alpine resorts.

  • "What can I say about Ian and my new found ability to ski!? I couldn't have done it without him. No amount of French ski school lessons would have ever got me to where Ian did in 2.5 days. I was fed up of skiing and had told my partner that this was the last time I would go. Now I am the one trying to convince him that we can fit another long weekend in before the season ends and we have only been back for 5 days! I literally can't wait to go again. Ian makes skiing completely logical and accessible. Every lesson is tailor made to you and your ability and nothing is too much trouble. In addition to being a great instructor, Ian is an incredibly knowledgeable guy and the whole thing is fascinating and fun. If you have never skied or have struggled or are fed up of trying to 'snowplough' safely down a mountain, I implore you to book a lesson with Ian!" - Client Feedback
  • "We took our seven year old skiing for the first time and really wanted him to learn the correct way from the very beginning. This wasn’t an easy mission as everyone wants to teach beginners snow plough!! Snow plough to stop and snow plough to turn, give it a few years and then try to break the bad snow plough habit! We invested in Ian’s teaching and were delighted with how easy it was for our son to learn the correct way!! I am baffled by the snow plough obsession!! Thank you Ian, Finn completely LOVED his first week skiing and we are very happy that he’s not learned anything he later needs to “unlearn”!!!!" - Client Feedback
