Swiss Chalet and the Matterhorn Mountain
An early 1960s Disneyland publicity photograph of the Matterhorn Mountain. The caption on the back reads: "Snow-capped" Matterhorn Mountain, rising 14-stories into the Anaheim skyline, is one of the chief landmarks and a highly popular 1959 addition to Disneyland. Two bobsled runs carry guests high up inside the Matterhorn and racing down, around and through the mountain before splashing to a halt in a "glacier lake" at the bottom. This Swiss Chalet is located at the entrance to the bobsled runs.
