While the Matterhorn is undergoing some major renovations and is shrouded in scaffolding, here is a 1959 publicity photograph featuring the mountain. I also hear the load/unload area is being renovated to fit the new bobsleds. The photograph is captioned: "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.
