The German ski resorts are all along the Austrian border (where there are mountains).... Not near Basel.

Apart from Feldberg, that is. Never been there, but with the snow we're having at the moment it should be perfect for beginners.

Feldberg should be fine, it's not a huge resort, but it's Black Forest highest peak... Nice restaurants, and easy to get there.

Re: Suitable Ski Resort in Germany Near Basel for Beginner

Here are all the mapped ski resorts of Germany. Check the sout-west area. Should not be that far from Basel.

http://www.bergfex.de/deutschland/

Check out for example this one, it's like 1 hour with car (according to Google Maps) and a yearly card costs 50€, which is almost the same you pay here for a daily card.

Note that I don't know this place, this was just a quick search, don't consider this my recommendation.

Feldberg seems to be very nice I would probably go with that

Re: Suitable Ski Resort in Germany Near Basel for Beginner

If you're looking for a good place to practice (once you've had a few lessons), I recommend http://belchen-seilbahn.de/ It does not have all the facilities of a large resort (equipment hire, ski-schools), but it's slightly closer to Basel than Feldberg - and in my opinion more suitable for the less than expert than Feldberg. It's at 1400m altitude.

After you've gone through Schönau, instead of turning right towards Feldberg, go left up the hill.

The one disadvantage with the black forest runs is that the runs are short and the queues at the weekend can be VERY long!!!!
