No one will be coming around the mountain of the Matterhorn Bobsled ride for the next six months as Disneyland doles out an extreme makeover to its popular, abominable snowman-inhabited attraction.

In one of the most extensive ride overhauls in the park's history, the improved version of the Matterhorn will feature new bobsled cars/seats, and a mountain that's freshly coated in new painted snow. City of Anaheim permits describe the work as a $1 million project, notes the L.A. Times.

Officials said no major track changes are planned for the roller coaster, and that no plans currently exist to tie-in the Matterhorn revamp with a new, Swiss Alps-themed Walt Disney Studios film in development.
